How to Grow and Harvest an Organic Garden; Index of Posts

Every year I try to start all of my seedlings inside. Some years I’ve been more successful than others and I always wished that I documented everything so this year I’ll be documenting everything I’m growing week by week. Check out these posts as I’ll be updating them all summer! Hopefully most will survive….unfortunately I managed to kill my celery, celeriac, and peppers because (1) I didn’t water enough and (2) my 18 month old helper turned the heat mat back on when I wasn’t looking 🙂 There’s always next year!
