Food Lion & Fall Gardening

Sorry for no picture of Food Lion shop...just imagine 4 jugs of milk.

I didn't need/want anything else from last week's sale, so I just had my husband stop in on his way back from visiting his Mom yesterday morning and pick up the milk.

Saved $2.22 not buying at our local Wally World.

So I decided I wanted to try some Fall Gardening this year. We've pretty well got regular gardening down, I think, time to try something new.
I went through the seed packets I already had, and apparently the only colder-weather seeds I had were Cabbage (yum) and Collards (yuck).

I had been trying to get to Walmart to get some of the Peat Pods I usually start my seeds in, but when we finally remembered about it, they were all out. So I put some Miracle Gro potting soil in the trays and sowed the seeds like that. I covered the trays with Saran Wrap (to create a greenhouse effect) and sat them on the kitchen window sill so they'd get morning sun.

Just a few days later, I had sprouts! Usually it's a couple weeks until sprouts.

Cabbage and Collards
Can you tell which is cabbage, and which is collards? I can't!

I moved them outside today to start hardying them for outdoor temps before planting them in the garden.
