My mishaps in the garden today

Post  AprilakaCCIL on 9/14/2011, 10:44 pm

Believe I'm just clumsy in the garden...The package of carrot seeds fell open at the bottom and a bunch of seeds fell out over 2 squares, and I planted 16 scallions per square instead of only 9!!! I hope I do better Friday when I go out planting seeds again, 4 real!!! Embarassed Embarassed Embarassed

If you're just wanting scallions, 16 per square should be fine. They don't need the room to bulb. Smile

Thank you Denese, Happy to know my squares used for scallions will be ok. (phew))

Don't worry too much about your carrots, either. Someone of credibility (I can't remember who) on this forum broadcasts her carrot seeds like lettuce. As a result, I've broadcast some of mine, too, in my fall squares. Doesn't seem to be hurting a thing.....and it makes things easier to thin out because I don't have 5 seedlings coming from the same hole...lol.

Yep I'll be broadcasting my lettuce seeds and eating the thinings as micro greens.
