Two Tips Tuesday – Sprouting!

Hope you all are enjoying your Tuesday. Let’s dig into some gardening tips today.

TIP #1 – Seed Starter Pots – These are little pots you put your seeds into get them started and once they sprout you can plant them in the ground. They are biodegradable so there’s no worries about them harming your soil. You can find these at your local Dollar Tree (yes $1!) or your local gardening center. If you are looking for other biodegradable alternatives, try these options: Egg Shell – take off top part of shell and fill. Egg Carton (cardboard ones only) – fill and once they sprout cut, separate, and plant. Paper towel rolls – cut down to small size, bend bottoms in, and fill.

In places where the temperature gets cold it is best to set up your seed starters indoors until after the frost. Here where I live it’s warm and sunny (or raining) during this time of the year so using the seed starters indoors is not necessary. You can put your seed starters right into your soil or you can even skip it altogether and put the seeds directly in the soil (make sure you are using good soil).

TIP #2 – Seed Signs – If you are like me you will probably forget what you planted after the seeds are in the ground. I have a fun, inexpensive way to repurpose the seed packets and turn them into seed signs. Check out the photos below to see how you can do this.

Matthew 13:18-23 – “Hear then the parable of the sower: When anyone hears the word of the kingdom and does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart. This is what was sown along the path. As for what was sown on rocky ground, this is the one who hears the word and immediately receives it with joy, yet he has no root in himself, but endures for a while, and when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word, immediately he falls away. As for what was sown among thorns, this is the one who hears the word, but the cares of the world and the deceitfulness of riches choke the word, and it proves unfruitful. 2As for what was sown on good soil, this is the one who hears the word and understands it. He indeed bears fruit and yields, in one case a hundredfold, in another sixty, and in another thirty.”
