Seeds to Starts Workshop, Part One

Tweezers make handling seeds easier.

Tweezers make handling seeds easier.

On Saturday, January 10, about 30 volunteers braved a cold morning to help Green Corn Project prepare for the spring gardening season. Mitch Mills, GCP board president, demonstrated how to prepare a seed flat, sow seeds, and set them on a path to success!

Volunteers sowed tomato, eggplant, and pepper seeds. The plants will be used in March when GCP installs new gardens and refurbishes existing gardens.

The second half of the workshop will be held on Sunday, February 1, from 9am to 11:30a. For more information, click here.

**Updated: Here are the varieties of seeds sowed:
Eggplant: Rosa Bianca (Botanical Interests)
Serrano: Tampiqueno (Botanical Interests)
Jalapeno: Early (Botanical Interests)
Bell Pepper: California Wonder (Botanical Interests)
Tomato: Stupice (Seeds of Change)
Cherry Tomato: Gardeners Delight (Botanical Interests)

(The name in parentheses represents the seed source.)
