We are not fair weather gardeners at Westwood Gardens! We are bringing on Spring in spite of the SNOW we have had sent to us by our Bi-polar Mother Nature. We are hoping she is back on her meds now and will send us Spring as usual. She is not stopping us, though. Come in and see Spring at the Nursery, you won’t be disappointed! Our talented designers, Jill and Stephanie have been busy and have a great selection of planters to delight you! They can custom make any thing your heart desires!

New LIFE emerging in the dead of Winter!

Newly emerging little sprouts give warmth to the dreary days of Winter! I had doubts about the ability to grow indoors and these precious little signs of hope are proving me wrong!

Experiment NOTES:

There has been some signs of mold wanting to start to ruin my little project. I knocked it down with my hand and added a fan to circulate the air.

I think I might need to find a sunnier window on the south side or add a grow light as these get bigger…?

Peas were fast to sprout and are supposed to be good as micro greens so I may want to start some and try them.

This would be a good project for kids! I bought my Grand kids a sprouting jar for them to try. I can’t wait to have them report on their progress!

Growing Vegetables Indoors…Can we get to a Harvest?

It is a fresh new year full of possibilities, so why am I doubting myself? I have never been very successful growing indoors, and now I have a plan to actually get my newly planted seeds to do their thing and actually live and produce something edible before my very eyes on our kitchen table. This may be wishful thinking, or it just seems wishful because I have never done it yet.

I pulled the Earthboxes out of storage yesterday. Unburied 3 bags of Organic potting Soil from the snow and brought them inside to thaw out. Today was the big day to plant! After soaking the seeds overnight, I seeded directly into the soil in the boxes. I saved some of the seeds in case these flop and I need to start them in mini greenhouse trays and then transplant them when they are bigger. I know some plants do not like to be transplanted so I figured I would try direct sowing first.

I planted quick-growing “Bloomsdale” Spinach(39 days), “Red Russian” Kale(60 days), “Bulls Blood” beets(60 days), and “Oregon Sugar Pod II” peas(62 days). The way I figure it we should be able to eat some spinach by Valentine’s Day and then be harvesting the rest by March 1st. I intend to juice any beet greens or Kale starts that I end up thinning out. I am sure I planted too thick to be sure I had enough seedings pop up to choose from.  Cross your fingers for me and I will keep you posted on this challenge weekly.
