One of my goals this year is to produce a lot of spices for my kitchen and my kids' kitchens. In fact, I finished a large batch of sweet onion powder just this weekend. Mmm mmm!
This isn't deep enough to do much more than just get the sprouts started here, but that's all I'm trying to do right now anyway. Many of these will go to my brother, and the rest to my own herb garden.
These trays are supposed to hold a dozen 2" pots, but I'm all out of them (I ordered more today: too late, really, but better late than never!).
The top two rows are a variety of hot peppers. I actually think this is the leftovers from Ed Hume's pepper seed packaging line. I intend to dry the peppers and grind them for spices, so this will be yummy.
Unsurprisingly, the biggest sprouts (bottom left) are radishes. Also coming up in the ten day old set are the Alyssum seeds (second row from the bottom). Curiously, one of the Spinach pots is thriving, the other shows no signs of life.
The for sets on the left of the top are Broccoli (our own 2012 seeds) and Kohl Rabi. I love the former. My sweetheart loves the second.
Part of the big appeal is that Mums make great cut flowers.
