Seed Starting March 28 2013 (1)

This week I started some seeds inside. While the last frost date for Calgary isn’t until the end of May, I usually don’t plant anything outside until June, so these guys will be inside for awhile still.

Seed Starting March 28 2013 (2)

This year I’m trying celery and eggplant for the first time. I also have some tomato, cucumber, and zucchini started too. I’m always so impatient waiting for the first seeds to germinate. The next week or two is going to seem so long. I’m thinking it’s going to be either the cucumber or zucchini that will germinate first.

Check out this post from last year about how I start the plants inside.

Click here to see the garden in full swing last August. Everything in that garden I started from seed. It’s so easy and so much cheaper than buying plants from the nursery.

To check out the harvest I had to pick before the snow started in the fall, check this out. All those green tomatoes ripened inside. There was also a lot of produce that was picked before – that’s just the stuff that I had to bring inside before the frost got to it.

Do you have a garden? What are you growing this year?
