Seed Starting

We started a ton of new seeds last week and are so excited to see them germinating! We are going to be participating in a seedling sale on June 2nd at the Blackburn Hamlet Funfair so we wanted to be sure to get some seedlings started.  We are also excited to get seedlings started for our garden beds at the school as well as for our brand new greenhouse!!!  We will be building three new garden beds this year again and we are so excited to have even more room to grow delicious, fresh crops for the students of Norman Johnston. 

Trays upon trays of seed starts (and this is only half of them)!
Plants include peppers, eggplant, tomatoes and cucumbers
as well as some flowers!

Marigolds! These will be great for our
seedling sale but also for companion
planting in our garden!
Some of the houseplants the students have been caring for and
propagating! Donations of plants (geraniums, hibiscus, purple queen,
spider, snake, and goldfish plants) from community members
Cheryl and Sarina have helped us so much!

Our tray of propagated succulents!
They're growing up so fast!

Some of our herbs are starting to germinate! Cilantro is
looking good!

We are so excited to update you on some photos of the greenhouse now that it is up and running! We have all sorts of plants growing in there as well!

Happy gardening!
