Do any of you follow Jill Winger at The Prairie Homestead? She has a blog and a YouTube channel. I've met Jill once in the past when she was home visiting her family and we know her sister Jenna well. Her sister was really good friends with our Heather growing up. :) Jenna is also Bradley's Godmother.
Anyway, Jill was just put out a video on seed starting and how to do it on the cheap. I just loved all her frugal ideas for doing so. She also cautioned that seed companies are running out of seeds quickly this year, so if you want some, pick them up or order them now!
I still have a lot left over from previous years, but I am not sure about their germination rates. Therefor, I hedged my bets a little and picked up some more flower and veggie seeds at the Dollar Tree. I will buy my tomato plants because I can never get them big enough and keep them healthy enough before they produce much. If I buy established plants, I do much better, so I set money aside for that each year. I am planning on picking up a few more seeds since I am now seeing them out at Walmart. I will pick up things that I cold not find at the Dollar Tree. I have a feeling that the seeds at the Dollar Tree will be very sparse or completely out within a week's time here. They had just put them out and there are already gaps in the display.
Just wanted to give everyone a head's up!
