All the while my beautiful old boy, Tyson, was lazing in the sun and keeping me company.
I also decided to plant a few spinach plants for a friend of mine. I tried saving the little plants I thinned from my garden for her, but that didn't work. So I decided to plant some from seed. These are for you Linda :)
I filled six peat pots with seed starter mix, then watered the pots to let the mixture settle. I let them stand about an hour or so. I put about 4-5 seeds in each pot and poked them into the soil with a long wooden bamboo skewer which works great for this task. After watering them again, I set the pots in the sun and will keep them moist until they germinate. At that time, I'll transplant into small plastic pots (of which I have a ton!) and will deliver them to Linda.
