Tim has bought all sorts of seeds and started some in the kitchen. I used to start seeds some 20 years ago, but I've never had any luck moving them into the garden. So I think it is pointless. But he's got the kitchen counter covered in seedlings... we can't put them any where else or the German Shepherd Puppy will get a hold of them. As it is she destroyed a house plant today. Dirt and roots everyplace...
I put in white onion seeds but we had red onion starters so I put some of those in too... but I hate it when you open it up and there are 6 useless moldy ones. Grrr... Since we get gift cards to Home Depot through our AmEx we shop at their garden center - But it seems that you can't be sure of the quality. Like fruit plants, the kids want blueberries and grapes and apple trees - I'd rather buy from a grower than from a big box place. Sure, the grower's trees are $10 more, but they are usually guaranteed as well.
