Check out seeds from the library. No, really.....you can check out seed packets.

The local library has a program supporting gardening. You check out packets of seeds. You don't actually return the seeds, unless you have some left, but it's a great way to get people interested in gardening.

This weekend we planted a few Swiss Chard seeds in the tray. Now they will sit under the grow light until they sprout and get strong. We are hoping to put the chard plants in the raised beds by late September. Let’s hope the weather turns cooler as that would be the ideal condition.

That is an excellent idea - tomatoes are a big thing for me and I want to grow more next summer, maybe some heritage varieties. Can you get those?

I have not tried the heiritage, need to check the nursery and see if they are available here. Tomatoes are my favorite.

if we can get enough production it may! I look forward to chard and hope it takes once it's in the soil.
