Starting your own seeds is one of the easiest ways to save money when growing food. You also get a lot more choice over which varieties you can grow since you aren’t limited to what’s typically found in the nursery.
When planting indoors we typically place 2-3 seeds in each section to see which one will do the best. We then go back in after they start growing to thin the seedlings down to the recommended space. We use these thinned down seedlings as “microgreens”. Not only are they extremely tasty, but very nutritious as well!

Our tomatoes have outgrown their containers that we started them in and now it’s time to transplant them into larger pots until they go out into the garden in a few weeks. I want to wait until night time temperatures are consistently in the 50s before I plant them outside. We’ve had unseasonably warm temperatures this year but you never know when a random freeze is around the corner in Oklahoma! You can go ahead […]
