The Seeds in the Hot House

August 23, 2011
My seeds in the hothouse

The time for late Summer sowing for Fall harvest has begun! I have sown seeds in my little hothouse and am awaiting germination in 3-15 days!  For those of you who are thinking, “Is it just me, or isn’t it the wrong time of year to be beginning to grow veggies?” I was in your shoes not long ago! 

 Then, while dreaming about Spring planting I was looking around on Seeds of Change and found out that in many climates it’s possible to plant in late summer for a Fall harvest! It gave me all of the details, told me which plants and which variations of those plants work best for planting this time of year!  Their info and tips are here: Fall Gardening

 I will be planting 2 types of Heirloom tomatoes, 2 types of Kale, 1 Salad Mix, 1 Type of Spinach, & 1 type of Carrots! My mother-in-law has more Jalapenos and other hot peppers than she knows what to do with, so I’ll be getting those from her garden :)

Aside from the seeds I bought from Seeds of Change, I also purchased the items below from Amazon with free shipping (I DID go to my local gardening centers, but no one carries this stuff this time of year).

I can’t wait to start seeing little sprouts pop up and transplant these outdoors (after Hurricane Irene passes, of course)

Happy last week of August to y’all and do pray that Hurricane Irene passes without incident… I am nervous about all of the tall trees so close to our house… did I mention we moved to South Carolina? Yes, moved in June (hence my long absence) and we live about 45 minutes inland…

    Am thinking/ praying for you w/ Irene visiting.
    Thanks for showing what you bought for seedling-ing. Interesting! and the Seeds of Change site–very helpful on planting groundcovers right about now. Missing you round :)
