The kids and I planted a 72-pellet tray of bell pepper seeds 2/8/14. They haven't sprouted yet, but it got the kids excited about gardening other vegetables too. We bought another tray of 72 pellets, and bought seeds to plant cucumbers, broccoli and peas - which we planted today (2/14/14). We also bought corn and carrot seeds as well, but they'll be planted directly outside once the weather cooperates. Tony and I have been throwing around ideas on building a raised garden to plant these seeds in once it warms up. We'll be using the side of an old crib for the trellis for the peas to grow on, so we'll be growing organic and recycling too! I'm also looking for some old tires to use to experiment with optimizing potato production (and again, recycling). If anyone in the Brainerd area happens to have 4-6 extra car tires laying around, I'll be looking for some in the spring!
