Starting my urban garden indoors
An area near my home will soon be ablaze with these lovely Rudbeckia flowers a.k.a. “Black Eyed Susan” – now that my indoor planting is done.
I planted 25 tiny Rudbeckia seeds in peat pellets I will transfer to the ground on the May long weekend, when I will scatter the dozens of seeds still in the packet, pictured here at the top of this post.
Below – in a somewhat funkily laid out way – is the other stuff I’ve planted.
Worth noting is that I planted some beans in eggs shells, based on advice from old new school by damsel in dis dress: Planting seeds in eggshells
Part of the instructions were to poke holes in the egg shells.
I poked at the outside with a pin – but it was impossible.
Then I tried from the inside out – and it worked right away – of course it can’t be too iron-clad or the chicks would never be able to get out. Made sense.
