I would always like to pride myself in saying that I carefully read the labels on products I buy and follow the directions to the letter, but my antsy side creeps in and I often find myself thinking I’ve read everything clearly only to find out much later – usually too late – that there has been some key, vital important detail that I have skimmed over. But not the case this time!!! I’m beginning to think vegetable gardening is a much more exact science rather than a haphazard hobby…at least if you want successful results that is.
Looking very closely there in the middle you can see one of the first little seedings from the heirloom garden peas I just planted 3 days ago!! I made sure and not only did I follow the instructions on the packet, but also did a little research prior to planting just for good measure. (I learned my lesson on the carrots). I planted my little round seeds just about a 1/4″ deep and covered with great compost soil and watered it in. And poof! There’s a seed right there – can’t wait to see what else today’s nice sunshine will bring up!
