Seed Tape May 8, 2009

I’ve already done a lot of my tiny seeds for this year, but I so want to try this out. You carefully arrange the seeds on wet toilet paper, then set the toilet paper in the ground. My little seeds got all bunched up and this would be a huge help. Also I like the idea of alternating the carrot and radish seeds. Maybe I should pick up a packet of radish seeds to intersperse with the carrots I haven’t planted yet.

We are starting to harvest a few early greens from the seeds I planted in March. The only thing that survived were a couple of greens from the mesculun mix. Everything else seems to have rotted away. The stuff planted in early April (peas, lettuce, greens, onions, carrots, beets–or maybe swiss chard, I’m not sure which was where) is doing great and we should be getting salads from there in a few more weeks.
