Sowing the seeds of love

Hi Chris, I am busy sowing my spring vegetable seeds using the great ideas from our blogger friends. I have my magic seeder and recycling all the toilet roll inners to use as planters. I’ve been collecting for ages, as you can see! I’m busy planting lettuce, tomato, beet root, cucumber, sweet basil, cabbage, spinach, swiss chard, carrots, squashes, onions, broccolli, and the new potatoes still to come. I can’t wait to see these all flourishing in the months to come. My boxes are ready and so is my big veggie patch. I’ll be able to feed a small nation with all these seeds 🙂

Wish me luck xx

Country living is the best! Being a true spirit of the earth, my garden is all about vegetables and fruit trees and herbs and chickens roaming free. I was keen to really start gardening when we moved to Philadelphia in 2005, but not your typical suburban-type garden – sterile and bug-free! I wanted an edible garden.

Hi Barbara
Could you please tell me where to get the magic seeder and how it works. Does it work with a seed suspension or the dry seeds?
Kind regards

I love the idea of using the toilet paper rolls. I’ve used yogurt containers in the past but they are hard to transplant. I’m getting into fall now but I’m going to try this next spring, great idea!

LOL Barbara – I’ve also just sown my tomato and basil seeds.

Apart from using empty loo rolls as a planter, I have another idea as well – check out my blog – I am also trying empty egg shells 🙂

Hi Dani – :-)!! I can’t wait to eat a decent tomato and have fresh sweet basil. The loo rolls are finicky and a tad too small, but it looks like the seeds are sprouting – already! Will definitely go and check out your egg shells!
