April's Urban Farm Challenge is seed starting! Erica at Northwest Edible Life has all the details HERE. If you leave a comment on her blog about what you are growing this month you will be entered to win a year of Urban Farm Magazine. Yes, there is a magazine for that. I have bought a few copies over the years and learned some great information about bee keeping and soil building.
You can see my current seed growing operation here and here.
Are those not lovely August toms? All started on top of my dryer in February.
This years setup comes complete with a guard cat:
This year I have planted seed for an herb garden Neverella and I are going to plant in the sunny part of the backyard. Now that the chickens are being penned in a rotating field style operation, I can plant what I want in the flower beds.
New to me herbs started this year include borage, chamomile, echinacea, sage, bergamot, calendula.
I am also using NW Edible's seed database this year, it is fantastic and she offers it on her blog for FREE.
What are you growing this year that is new to you?
