Just Call Me Farmer Dar

Today is the day to get my seeds started. I know I'm waaaaaaay behind, but we just recently found out that we will be staying put for a while, so now I can start making long-term plans.

I've never really gardened from seeds, so I feel like I don't know what I'm doing. I've read up a little bit on the subject, and mainly I need good soil, light, and moisture. I think I can manage the good soil and moisture. Hopefully, I have enough light. I'll give them what they need, then it's all up to them.

I don't know at what point plants can hear you talk to them. I always give my flowers a pep talk when I transplant them. I guess I'll give the little seeds a pep talk, too. Just in case!

We've got the garden area staked out, and a load of compost is coming today. We also have a couple spots picked out for our raised garden. We plan to have a covered area so we can grow lettuce this winter. (I'll let you know our success on that endeavor.)

So, I'm going to go out and play in the dirt now, and say a lot of prayers over my little seeds, and hopefully, I'll have something to transplant by the end of May!


  1. At least now I know that you're "talking" to the flowers and not yourself....

  2. I've always wanted to do a garden from seed, but I haven't lived anywhere with a spot to grow anything. Someday!

    Good luck!

  3. Hooray for seeds and dirt! Hope you post pictures.
