Today is December 29th, right at the end of this disappointing year of 2016. I decided it was time to add a little early joy to 2017, so I decided to start my first seeds. One of my goals this year is to grow all my flowers from seed. This could really backfire on my because I have never had a lot of luck starting seed indoors in the past.
This year though I have decided to up my game. I bought a heat mat to start the germination and grow lights to keep the seedlings alive and healthy until it is time to go in the ground. My kitchen is looking more like a mad scientists laboratory than a place you would want to eat.
The process of starting a seed is one that has long fascinated me. The thought that you can take a small seed, something that in no way looks alive and grow a magnificent plant is one of the truest miracles we can experience in our lives. This is something I will be revisiting on my blog all year long. I want to document my successes and failures so that I can hopefully help others trying their hand at growing seeds.
