HAPPY SPRING! - Two ways to plant seeds


For all of you who who are anxious to get started in the garden and love the nitty gritty of planting, there are two different ways to begin seedlings: "Direct Seeding" or what Marv calls "Threading." 

Direct Seeding is one seed at a time in each little container of the tray as Marv is doing here with these ZINNIA seeds.

Can't wait to see those beautiful flowers popping up!

Then there is "Threading" which is when you fill up a row in the tray with hundreds (200 to be specific) seeds...

and then scoop out several from a row. Take them apart one at a time.  The roots will look like THREADS.  

Then you poke a hole...

and "spot them" into the hole and....


VoilĂ  that seedling is happily in his home!

Hope you have a great first day of SPRING!
