Cucumber s (Lemon & Marketmore)

    Do you plant in pots, soil, or both? You look like you have quite a green thumb!

    1. I plant in both, but mainly pots because my yard is small. I truly enjoy growing plants and I am learning by example. I think my grandmother would have been proud. She is my inspiration!

    Toilet paper rolls….genius. I’m using that next year! Do you plant the whole thing or pop the seedlings out of the rolls before planting?

    1. I plant the entire thing because they break down quite easy. I love using them. Out of all the seed starting method, this is my favorite!

    Wow! What an incredible list. You’re very ambitious, and certainly have a good green thumb to grow all these thing from seed. I applaud you!
    Happy gardening!

    PS. Watch out for the Sweet Woodruff… It’s lovely but can take over huge areas of your garden!

    1. Thank you so much Steve. It gives me so much joy to watch new life form from a single seed. I will certainly watch out for the Sweet Woodruff. I have several of the plants in containers. Thanks for advising me of their tenaciousness.
