Starting seeds

I have not been very successful at starting vegetables from seed in the past. Therefore we have bought plants at the greenhouse.  I think I tried to over think and be too formal about the whole process. I mean, I am sure my grand parents did not buy seed starting kits back in the day. They probably planted directly in the ground but they lived in Kentucky and I in Alaska, gardening here is whole other story.
Enter Pinterest and a plethora of gardening pins. I am giving this milk jug greenhouse method a whirl and praying for success in growing plants.  I like the thought of being able to set these jugs outside on warm, sunny days. If we ever have warm and sunny days.  I forgot to buy celery seeds so I may have to pick those up as olants at the greenhouse when I buy tomato plants. And I want to grow sunflowers but I bought no sunflower seeds.


  1. Sounds like a great way to start a garden. I'll have to see if my sister knows about this, she loves to garden. :)

  2. Looks promising! We have planted some seeds directly in the ground. My thing is that I cannot bring myself to thin them.

  3. I always wait too late to start seeds, so off to the garden center I go. I keep thinking I need a greenhouse, this carrying plants in and out of the house everyday is for the birds. haha
