THE DIRT ABOUT GROWING FOOD
- THE DIRT: Start with quality growing medium or soil. If you need to buy bagged material, use organic products.
- THE SEEDS: Start with organic or biodynamic seeds. High Mowing Seeds and Turtle Tree Seeds are our favorite seed companies. It's best to save your own seeds once you're experienced, until then, source your seeds from reputable local seed companies.
- THE LOVE: Once the seeds are placed in the growing tray or earth, cover them gently. Try not to plant the seeds too deep, they need to sprout against gravity through the soil, make it easy for them to sprout. Pat them gently and say "I LOVE YOU, stay warm, be strong and sprout soon" :)
- THE WATER and WARMTH: Water your seeds as soon as they're planted. Each seed needs moisture and warmth to germinate. Each seed is unique, germinating and sprouting on it's own time, just like every gardener is unique. Be patient. Keep watering when needed and nature will amaze you!
