This year, I tried Annie's Granny seed mat method to plant my carrot seeds. It did really well. Here you see it at the top of the photo. Yes, there are some spots were the seed did not germinate, so I had to go in and add more seeds where there are empty spots. I can't wait to pull the purple carrots to see how they taste!! Below the carrots, the beets are growing well too. However, again, they are some empty spots. In fact, they were worst than the carrots, so many of the seeds didn't germinate. I ran out of beet seeds, so I filled in the missing spots with radishes.
Food Garden Kitchen. I'm really loving growing celery because celery is part of the dirty dozen list, (fruits and vegetables that contain the most pesticides). Knowing that I can grow organic celery and not have to eat pesticide in my food, is pretty awesome. Does anyone know, is there a way to preserve celery, either by freezing, canning, or drying? I wonder if I can put celery in the dehydrator. Have you done this before?
