Seed starting, continued!
Speaking of starting vegetables from seeds...
Michael Tortorello of the New York Times gives new meaning to the phrase "kitchen garden" when he writes about trying to start plants from seeds that you can find - yes - in your kitchen.
And if you'd like to read more about growing veggies of the heirloom variety, read Laura Mathews post on her blog, Punk Rock Gardens, where you can also see what happens when you leave your broccoli seedlings where your chickens can get at them.
And finally, Burpee Seeds has a way to grow a great salad mix of lettuces in a container without having to purchase packets filled with hundreds of seeds.
Burpee sells a small capsule containing 20 seeds -- for four different varieties of lettuce -- for just $5.95.
