growing for beginners
thanks to everyone who answered all my questions in the past. i really appreciate it. here's one more: i keep reading everywhere that when sowing seeds, it's important to make sure the container has holes in the bottom for drainage. does that mean i should put some sort of dish or tray underneath the container? i realize this is silly but i just want to do it right. today, the community centre near my house had this fantastic event called 'seedy saturday'. it included workshops for seed starting (which was ace) and some talks about biodaynamics and other stuff. there were all sorts of booths with heirloom and organic seeds from local seed companies. i bought the following: red pear tomato, black-seeded simpson lettuce, italian parsley, romanian sweet peppers, and sweet basil i bought the lettuce impulsively, i don't know anything about that type. but i got advice for the rest of them. i also got (for free) some tubs of really great compost, which i've already added to my existing plants. my community centre has small greenhouse, which is just great. i have to look into seeing how i can get involved in it. i just loved the vibe today, so many nature-loving plant-lovin people. it totally warmed my heart!
