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.

|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.
