Yesterday, I delved into the deep recesses of the cupboard above my fridge, and unearthed my seed box that has been sitting dormant for the past 12 months.  I plucked the seed packets out one by one, examined the contents, and then sorted them in like piles.  Peas in the plant outside pile, broccoli in the plant inside pile, empty packets in the need to buy more pile, and on and on it went.

I came to two conclusions yesterday while foraging through and sorting my lovely seed packets:  First, I need a new seed sorting, and storing system, and second, I need to get crackin’ on planting my seeds.  Time is running out.  The growing season isn’t very long here in Alaska.  If I want to grow  certain things I have to start them indoors, first.   Typically people start their seeds anywhere from the middle of April to the first week in May, so as you can see I’m already behind schedule, per normal.

The plan is to go to the store today and get what I need, and then plant the ones that need to be planted indoors tomorrow.

Here is what is on my to buy list:

  • Dirt
  • Tomato seeds
  • Peas
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Cauliflower seeds
  • Potatoes
