Home-made newspaper pots, one of the free things I creatively adapted for sowing seeds
I attended a wonderful (free) seed sowers workshop at my local library, hosted by Sustainable Renton, with guest speaker Caitlin Moore also known as the Urban Food Warrior (also known as the one to finally get me to sow!! if you ever get a chance to hear her speak, oh my gosh do it! Seeds are her passion and her knowledge is priceless!) I was fortunate to attend the workshop with a blogging friend and fellow seed sower A'mee, who has graciously agreed to be my guest blogger here and contribute her wonderful post, stay tuned this week for her post on the seed sowing workshop...its great!!
Only a few weeks ago I posted a very elaborate schedule for when my seeds needed to be started, the reality was I was scared to take the step and commit. I was using excessive research and preparedness as an ongoing stalling method....Well strike that! I have read and researched, I've now decided its time to do!
Without further waiting and procrastinating (which I am very good at), over the weekend I made my containers and started sowing! Did you hear that...I Started Sowing!! Doing a happy dance! One seed led to another and before I knew it they were mostly in pots and ready to go! Woo-Hoo...My lesson for starting seeds, don't over think them, just do it!
So now I am pleased to say my seeds are potted with only the direct sowers left to go. It sure does feel good to have something in a pot, actually doing it rather than just talking about it. I know me, another season would've passed with the tag line...oops missed seeding time again!
While I agree preparation and providing a perfect environment can be key to a successful grow season, putting it off and being distracted by making it perfect can cause you to miss the seed sowing boat all together. I will post my how-to this week along with the re-purposed seeding containers I made, its an exciting and productive week here at Polka Dot Galoshes!
