Garden log 1/9/20. I may have realized that if I bought Jiffy 50 mm seed pellets in bulk, that I could get them for half-price. So I now have a LOT of Jiffy pellets; more than I can use this season, I’m pretty sure. So I thought I’d put together some giveaways for the garden club group this spring, to encourage novice gardeners.
First up, some tomatoes (flowers and other veggies coming soon):
These are little packets of about 10 tomato seeds each, and I’m happy to include 3 pellets with each packet. You’ll want to sow about 2-3 seeds / pellet, somewhere around mid-March. You need bright grow lights to start seeds, and you may want a heat mat to help with germination. Covering the seeds with plastic (milk jug, etc.) will help retain moisture, so you don’t have to water quite as often.

I’ll be doing the giveaway in the Oak Park Area Garden Club group, for porch pick-up, so mosey over there if you’d like to snag some.
