Well, it's that time again, planning the garden. This shelf is a new addition this year that holds all my pots with the new seedlings and I have it filled to the brim. My dining room window has the best lighting for the plants and for the shelves that don't reach the window I have fluorescent lighting hooked up. This is my third year, so I still feel like a beginner, but every year I learn more and more. This year I made the mistake in getting my soil right from my raised beds to start my seedlings and it became to compacted in the containers not retaining moisture and needed frequent watering. I should have bought potting soil and used that instead as my pepper plants had low germination success resulting in only 6 pepper plants. The rest of the seeds, tomatoes, beets, basil, radishes, and broccoli did well. I am trying over with the peppers, hoping for more plants for the garden in May. Otherwise, I'll have to buy the plants as we like bell peppers. My dining room will look like this until my planting date around May 15th and then the shelf will become handy in my storage room. I'll also be planting different types of squash, peas, beans and cucumber, but you sow those seeds outdoors at planting time. Looking forward to a profitable season of gardening!
