Gardening 101: Planting time!

I'm not a great gardener.  Here are some snapshots of last summers plants.

Pepper plant #1:
Pepper plant #2:

But that doesn't mean I don't love the process.  Here are some flowers I planted when we first moved in.  They just started blooming the other day:

 Last week  I pulled together all my seeds, and the kids and I started seedlings for our summer garden.

 Egg cartons work great because they decompose, so you can plant them directly into the soil.  Here are some of our plants playing peek-a-boo!



Oh, and a few weeks ago a friend of mine gave me a bunch of onion bulbs.  I planted them in my onion box and tah-dah!  Looks like I'll have useable scallions soon, and onions no long after that.  I'm excited!

Wow! Your onions are growing great! I planted them in cups inside - next year they will go straight into the ground :)
