Let the planting begin

After finding seeds (Southern Exposure Seed Exchange) and soil (Baccto) that, as far as we could see, were not connected to Monsanto, I committed us to container gardening. We are going to try onions–from sets, carrots, lettuce, basil, parsley, cilantro and tomatoes from seeds. We are also going to plant some flowers. We worked a little on the space today, got some seeds in egg cartons and really enjoyed going from the planning on doing this to actually getting started.

And yes, I know we have Styrofoam egg cartons…we are doing what we can where we can. -1 for Styrofoam, +1 for re-purposing…it’s a push.

We also got ourselves over to Ikenberry’s and picked up some burger, sirloin tips and local eggs.
