Finally – I got to this project I’ve been looking forward to. A dozen milk bottles, a dozen packets of seeds, and a bag of dirt. It felt good to get my hands dirty again. Even if it was in the kitchen sink.
I found this method of planting at wintersown.org, My Skinny Garden, and A Gardening Year and am giving it a try for the first time this year. I have read that it works great for perennial flowers like black-eyed susans, coneflowers and hollyhocks.
I wondered if it will work for any vegetables. I tried dill and onions. I hope to find another bottle or two and try some lettuce later.
I can’t wait to see what comes up. I’d love to have a garden full of flowers this year. They get pretty expensive to buy.
Here’s the list of seeds I planted:
Delphinium Magic Fountains mix
Delphinium Fantasia mix
Rudbeckia Irish Eyes
Rudbeckia Indian Summer
Shasta Daisy Alaska
Wild Heliopsis (I collected)
Wild Tansy (I collected)
Dukat Dill (I collected)
Onions, White Portugal
Onions, Sweet Yellow Spanish
