After waiting so long for our seeds, we did nothing special, just threw them in the organic soil that’s fertilized with organic guinea pig “beans” (yes, our cavies eat organic) and added water and love! So far, two weeks later, we had 10/12 sprout in Zone 5, update uploaded soon!

Good luck to all from Noble Homestead!
Blunders and bloopers and no one got hurt, and after 3 days we have moved all the DIRT!
A sea of violets… I was so thrilled to realize my whole back yard is edible! I’ll be playing with a dandelion recipe soon. This didn’t keep me from being careful. We have guinea hens on order, and are working on fencing in the back yard. In the meantime, it’s leggings and boots for me. I’m SICK of ticks!
I never would have dreamed I would be so happy about dirt, but I am :). Ryan, of Grasshopper Gardens here in Upstate NY (http://www.grasshoppergardens.com/) totally hit the mark!! I am so pleased. I will be a bit busy over the next week, carting that to the garden! I will be sore but smiling.
I enjoyed this very much..
