While we are working on getting the patch ready I thought I'd get a head start on some seeds.
I made up a bunch of little newspaper pots yesterday and filled them with seed raising mix. I watched this video on youtube for the pots - I used one single page of newspaper for each.
They've been planted with rocket, gem lettuce, flat leaf parsley and beetroot. The beetroot really should have gone in for winter and autumn so I'm not sure how well they will go given the unseasonably warm weather Sydney has been having so far but all in the name of learning, hey?
They're living in a polystyrene box in front of a window that gets a good amount of warmth and light and hopefully in about a weeks time I will see little flashes of green peeking out!
