Planting Seeds, All Year Long

Updated: May 24



If you would have told me (even just three years ago) that one day I'd enjoy planting flowers and growing my own garden, I don't think I would have quite believed you. But, here we are...and I'm loving it! I plant seeds all year round in the intangible way (if you're picking up what I'm putting down, lol). But, the last two years I've also been planting physical seeds. Rest assured, I'll continue planting both.


My husband picked out quite a few different seeds this year:

  • lettuce (from which I already have some sprouts growing!)

  • peppers

  • tomatoes

  • sunflowers

  • dill

  • cilantro

  • melon

  • cucumber

  • lavender

  • dahlias

  • zinnias

  • ...(and a few more)


I put the starters in leftover egg cartons. I also use those to make fire starters! The lettuce is in a large planter (which luckily, I remembered to punch out the drain holes because that was a big stress point last year when we had a big rain, haha). I found soil specific for flowers and soil specific for fruits/veggies at CostCo, so I'm super excited to see how each of those perform!


While the plants I transferred for the winter from outside to inside (lemongrass, basil, rosemary, avocado babies, green onions, etc.) are struggling, and not all of them made it through, my houseplants have been thriving. I have so many more to repot since they're having babies and growing. Watch the video below for the succulent I repotted (this one was the highest priority)! I found a gnat free soil mix to use for my indoor plants, I'll let ya know how that goes because that is always a struggle and last year I lost quite a few to that issue.




To stay updated on my plant progress, be sure to follow me on Instagram and watch my stories! What are you planting this year? Tell me in the comments. As always, #GetSatiated.
