So spring has arrived and I am excited as a first time homeowner that I have finally started my garden. I want to grow herbs, veggies, and flowers. So far I have bought seeds from Wal-Mart, Home Depot, and Matawan World of Gardening to start growing them in peat pods indoors. All you have to do is place two or three seeds in the peat pod and water them until they expand to about an inch and a half in order for the germination process to begin. Each seed germinates at a different time. The peat pods I purchased came in a plastic dome so it simulates a green house. The best part about it I think is when the seedlings start to sprout you can transfer the peat pods right into the ground.
After seven days the first to sprout was the tomato, squash, wallflower, and basil plants. So far so good.
