The Garden at 485 Elm starts a lot of seeds indoors and covered on porches.
Starting our own seeds saves a lot of money over buying “starts” — when someone else starts seeds, so gardeners can buy them as young plants ready to go into the ground.
Today Hannah and I planted hundreds of seeds: summer squash, sweet and hot pepper, Chinese cabbage, pac choy, collard greens, chives and garlic chives, large tomatoes and cherry tomatoes, and echinacea purpurea.
They’ll live on our sun porch until they’re ready to go into the ground.
