My first attempts are container gardening on my balcony.

Seedlings, seedlings, will you grow for me?

Spring is in the gardening stores! Seed packets and gardening tools are starting to hit the shelves. I have decided to try and grow my own little seedlings this year so I can save some money. Thankfully, I have learned from some of my gardening errors last summer. I was able to pick the seeds that would be most suitable to the horribly growing conditions on my balcony and the fruits and veg we will actually eat! I love to garden with my son, a preschooler. The other night we spent an hour or so filling our windowsill greenhouse with soil and seeds. He was quite excited to help! He was a little disappointed when he looked the day after and didn’t see any plants yet! I told him that we need to be patient. I hope that they actually grow, especially the strawberries. He loves strawberries!
