Seeding indoors

Check it out! These are all the random plants I seeded this winter, just for fun. I used almost all (except the fiber seed trays and potting soil) repurposed materials - 2.5 gal Water dispenser, 2 ltr soda bottles, yogurt and frozen strawberry containers, used seeding trays, and used window insulation for a mini greenhouse. Look around your house, your neighbor's house, even try some olympic dumpster diving and see what you come up with. Be sure to make sure the container you are using are cleaned and weren't used for anything you wouldn't want near your food like paint or spackle. I have inverted several of these plants to see what could bear it and the tomatoes are doing the best by far. Hot peppers in second and beans in last (although the black beans are beginning to make a run). I will blog about upside down tomatoes another time. We have black and navy beans, radish, pak choi, lettuce, tomatoes, onion and spinach. Mmmm
