We have started the second stage of our suburban farm. I came home from a long weekend working at the shop to find my husband and the kids had built our veggie patches. This working thing is working out a treat!
Our keen writer labeled the toilet paper tubes.
The kids and I then set out planting seeds. Buying seedlings was so tempting but I really wanted to show them the wonders of growing from seed (which I have never actually done before) And what a wonder it was. It actually worked! Each tube was filled with soil, this stage almost ended the whole exercise. How do you fill a tube with dirt when there's a hole in the bottom??
Now a week later, tiny little heads have started popping out of the soil. I went through this exercise with great hopes but really, I didn't think it would actually work as I generally can't grow anything, but hoorah!
We may buy a few tomato seedlings as I am completely impatient. If all travels along nicely though, We can pay off the mortgage in watermelon sales! Will keep you posted!
