This year we decided to plant a nifty little seed pot produced by Miracle Gro.
We chose cucumbers, peppers, and tomatoes and planted them in pots and housed them on our deck. I'm so impressed at how they are doing. They quickly started sprouting and are really looking good. I'll keep you posted on their progress.
So far, this system seems much better for growing plants than the plan to plant in our not so great clay soil in NC.
