Sowing in March garden

 

Finally, the first sunny days are here! Yesterday I started to prep my garden for this years’ sowing and growing season.

 

Garden planning

 

I took stock of all the seeds in my collection and made a list of what to sow when. I also made a list of supplies I want to get when my next paycheck comes in. Our local supermarket has an awesome promotion where you get a seed starter pack with every E 15,- worth of groceries. These are great to add to my sowing list.

Zen garden

 

Working in the garden is a real stress reliever for me. It helps me to reconnect with my body. Normally I’m an impatient person but gardening helps me slow down.

This year I want to have 9 pots or bins for growing produce, flowers and herbs. I have 4 pots and 1 barrel (for potatoes) already, so I want to stock up on 5 more. I use plastic pots. My mom gave them to me last year to start my collection of garden materials. And I also have some terracotta pots my mom in law
I also need two bags of good quality soil to get going. New pruning scissors are on my list as well. I can’t seem to remember where I put my previous one after last years season.

Last year’s garden

 Are you curious of what you can sow in March?

 

Produce:

radishes – these did wonderful last year so I’m planting them again

rocket – an easy starter crop which keeps growing after plucking

lettuce

spinach

potatoes

unions

 

Herbs:

chives – these did great as well last year so in they go again!

chamomile

parsley

oregano

celery

I think it’s good to sow seeds which were a succes the year before and try out some new seeds as well.

 

I can’t wait to get started!

    I bought some sowing pots this week along with some seeds for tomatoes, chilis and coriander. I haven't grown veg from scratch before so I'm really looking forward to it this year! Hopefully they'll grow! #TheList

    Sounds like a great plan! It's definitely a good idea to keep with what's worked before, but I also find I'm determined to make my tomatoes better each year, and actually grow some decent peppers as we go through so many each year! #thelist

    I really wish I liked this kind of thing because my kids would probably love it but sadly I don't like anything to do with gardening at all. I did try planting some seeds for them.once last year and I'm not sure what I did wrong but they didn't even grow so that was the end of that.

    I know that I am in danger of sounding really stupid but I didn't realise you could successfully grow produce in pots. You have inspired me and I am going to look into sowing some herbs. As a child I remember growing tomatoes with my grandad and I'd love my boys to grow something we could eat. TY for linking up with #FamilyFun 🌸
