If you’ve been following my journey, you know I love my garden! Today I’m sharing how excited I am to be starting my garden from seeds for the first time. Here are some tips and lessons I’ve learned on how to plant an Easy Garden From Seeds.
Easy Garden From Seeds
Today we’re going to talk about one of my favorite topics: gardening. As we move into the spring and summer months, many of us are starting to think about planting our gardens and enjoying the fruits of our labor. Gardening is not only a fun and rewarding activity, but it’s also a great way to connect with nature and enjoy the outdoors.
There are many benefits to gardening, both physical and mental. For one, gardening is a great form of exercise, as it requires a lot of bending, stretching, and lifting. It’s also a great way to get fresh air and vitamin D, which is essential for our overall health and well-being.
But gardening isn’t just good for our bodies – it’s also good for our minds. Studies have shown that spending time in nature can reduce stress and anxiety, improve our mood, and increase our sense of well-being.
Gardening can also help us to develop a sense of purpose and accomplishment, as we watch our plants grow and thrive.
So, where do you start when it comes to gardening? Well, first you’ll need to decide what kind of garden you want to create.
Planning Your Garden
Do you want to grow vegetables, herbs, flowers, or a combination of all three? Once you’ve decided on the type of garden you want, you’ll need to choose a location that gets plenty of sunlight and has good drainage.
Next, you’ll need to prepare your soil. This may involve tilling, adding compost or fertilizer, and removing any weeds or debris.
Once your soil is ready, it’s time to plant your seeds or seedlings. Be sure to follow the instructions on the packet or tag, as each plant may have different requirements when it comes to planting depth, spacing, and watering.
As your plants grow, you’ll need to water them regularly and keep an eye out for any pests or diseases. You may also need to fertilize your plants periodically, depending on their specific needs. And don’t forget to enjoy the beauty of your garden!
Whether you’re admiring the colorful blooms of your flowers or harvesting fresh produce from your vegetable garden, gardening is a wonderful way to connect with nature and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.
In the past I started with just some herbs in pots and a flower garden. Then I bought some large barrels and added lettuce and tomatoes, besides my large strawberry patch.
Last year, I went all out and bought two medium size gardening beds and two small ones, besides my pots for herbs.
This year I joined a local gardening club and they inspired me to start my garden from seeds, plus try new plants I haven’t planted before like potatoes, arugula, onions and carrots.
Seasoned gardeners told me that you need to plant seeds now, outside, for some vegetables such as potatoes, carrots, lettuce, arugula and peas.
So I’m listening to the voice of wisdom and planting potatoes, onions, carrots outside, but will keep my lettuce a bit longer since the seeds indoors are looking so pretty and I’m afraid a late frost will kill the plants. So I’m just planting the ones which will stay under the surface.

I bought lettuce, arugula, tomato, sweet peppers, basil, cilantro, parsley, potato, onion and carrots seeds from Burpee.
Also Bought some starting kits from Burpee Starting Kit.
Hubby planted some flowers from seeds and a neighbor gave me some pollinator species, local flowers. But I’m not sure how I want to lay my flower garden out yet!
Here are the steps I’ve taken so far:
Watered the dirt and planted 5 seeds in each space
Planted the seeds
3 Days Later
One Week Later
I also got a dehumidifier since I was warned about mold while growing indoors, so I run it during the day
Here are the next steps:
Once plants are larger, I am moving them to larger containers.
These are the Seed Starter Pots I bought:
We don’t really do anything about the strawberry patch, just some leaf cleaning and in early June, we’ll be getting more than we can pick.
I’m planning on buying some of the strawberry support to stop strawberries from touching the ground and being eaten by ants, going bad by touching the dirt.
If you’re starting a new patch, this is what you can do!
