Container Garden - Getting Started

The kids and I took advantage of the beautiful weather today, to get started on this year's container garden! We're probably a month behind in getting our seedlings started, but such is our busy life :)

Today, we put the seeds for the organic Roma Paste tomatoes and Genovese sweet basil in toilet paper roll seed starters. Originally I thought about using a fish tank as a greenhouse for our starter rolls. But I found the rolls actually fit nicely in a large, plastic salad mix container. Once we get some more organic soil mix, we'll get our heirloom Rouge de Grenoblouse lettuce seeds started. Plus I'd like to pick up some green bell pepper seeds or seedlings.

Can't wait to get our little garden started again this year!
