Gardening from Seeds

Gardening from Seeds

Gardening can be a used as a stress reducer and a great way to save money for your family. An added plus is there is nothing better for you to eat than your own fresh home grown vegetables.  A six-pack of lettuce plants can cost you about the same as a packet of several hundred seeds! Not to mention that there are many more unique and interesting varieties available by seed than from plants.

Many people, especially those in cooler climates, start their seeds indoor and then transplant them when the last frost is past. But you can grow many plants from seeds sown directly in your garden. In addition, some plants just don’t like to be transplanted, for example spinach, carrots and beets, so it really makes sense to grow these from seeds directly in your garden.

Planting from seeds outdoors makes sense when:

  • You want to grow more than one or two of an item (or you have friends that you can share your seeds with).
  • The plants you want are easy to grow from seed (see list below).
  • You live in a mild climate, or you chose hardier varieties if you live in a cooler climate.

This is such a great idea to reduce stress. It's great being able to consume goods you grew yourself.

I love gardening, but rarely have success planting from seed. I do well with transplanting and dividing, but will leave the veggie garden to you.
