Is it planting seedlings? Or planting seeds to grow seedlings? Oh boy!
If you’re in the Western Cape, it wouldn’t have been lost on you that we had a lovely, wet winter. I am so very thankful for the rain and, for the most part, so is my garden. Winter does however take a little bit of toll…So, this weekend we spent some time starting to de-winterize our garden, with a little bit of help from Builders. The kids loved getting their hands dirty (as they always do – just look at their history), while we got to spend some good quality time with each other.
You may be wondering what we did to start the de-winterization process (don’t you just love how I make up words!). We didn’t do much really. Pulled up some weeds, cleared out some dead plants (a moment of silence for our water-logged tomato plants please) and got to planting our seedlings.
What we used to plant the seedlings (or seeds – you know what I mean)
- Old egg cartons
- Empty used 6-pack seedling trays
- Old plastic pots
- Potting soil and compost, mixed about 50/50
Okay, so that was a lot of “old”! We keep these items on hand, specifically for this purpose. We like to reuse what we can!

Have you started the de-winterizing process in your garden? Do you have any tips for me?
Until next time,
