How to Start a Garden

The abundance of garden seeds we supply come from a site with a similar name Johnnyseeds.com. I became a fan of them when working on a organic market garden in Western Slope, Colorado. Circle A Garden. Betsy taught me how to harvest almost every vegetable known to man. She has a bunch of recipes at http://circleagarden.com/recipe.

Start the Seeds

Seeds do best in different ways. You can germinate them in paper towels, then transfer them to their starting tray. Keep them well watered (and drained).

Plant them in the bed

Plant the seeds per seed packet instructions and transplant it out of the starting tray into the lightly packed soil.

I recommend starting with onions and greens. You can grow many in small areas and it requires low skill.
