The first shoots of the Garden

I hear from Gardeners that this is the best time....when you start gardening and you start to see the shoots coming up!

First we bought these on Saturday, just 4 days ago.



Then we bought some of these....


And we watered the pellets in the tray and added the seeds....


And yesterday when we checked them...we had these!!!!


in this one we have a little red beet coming up too...


It really is that simple....once these grow a few inches, we will move them into the ground!

4 days, pellets, seeds, and watered only once when we first watered the pellets, put the lid on the tray and it makes a little green house....EASY!

So, are the times in the 2nd pic down the peat pellets? Or are they something different than the discs in the previous post? I'm thinking I want to go get some and am just trying to figure out what to get. We do a garden each year, but usually buy plants or seeds or both and just put them right in the garden, thought we would try these this year.

R-The 3rd, 4th, and 5th pictures down are the peat pellets, the little dirt like looking round things, they look like discs until you add water and then they look like little dirt balls. The top picture is the thing that is wrapped around them when you buy them. The are $6 at Wal Mart and $6.99 at Home Depot and the ones I bought have 72 in them but they come in smaller sizes too. Hope that helps!

They come in that tray, so you are looking for a long tray with the round pellets/discs in them in nice neat little rows.
