Happy Weekend

This weekend I plan on doing some housecleaning & home projects, cooking up a few deep-dish pizzas (click if you missed this recipe, it's so good!), and starting some eggplant seeds in large containers.

This year, I plan on starting about 2,000 vegetable plants from seed (click here to see the varieties I'm growing).  I hope to offer a few different sizes of plants, so I'm staggering my seed-starting dates.  Eggplants take a long time to grow from seed, so they need to be started first.  I'm planting the first into large 16-ounce cups.  In two weeks I'll start more in a smaller pot, and again with an even smaller pot.

That's it for me.  What are your weekend plans?


  1. I'm doing school with the children and not much else. The weekend is my down time while the hubby is at work. Have a great weekend. Rebekah

  2. I'm going to make a few make-ahead meals. I think your deep dish pizzas may just be on that list. They look yummy. Thank you for sharing.

  3. What kind of soil do you use for planting seeds? My Opa once told me that my seeds weren't doing well because I didn't use "seed soil". Any ideas?

  4. I use an organic potting soil.
    It has to be soil specifically for starting seeds. You can buy it here at Menards.
