These days, I’ll take any advantage I can get when it comes to growing veggies and fruits in our home garden. So when I came across this Jiffy Greenhouse kit (pictured above) at Walmart on Sunday, I stopped to read more.

Directions: Simply add water to expand the peat pellets, then sow the seeds you want to grow, cover and place indoors out of direct sunlight, and wait for sprouts to appear. I tossed in some cantaloupe, Brussels sprouts, bok choy, cilantro and broccoli seeds, then crossed my fingers. Seemed simple enough to me, but would it work?

YES! And efficiently. In just a two days, the seeds started to sprout.

And two days after that, nearly all had emerged from the peat.

So stay tuned for what happens next. Hopefully these seedlings continue to grow positively to the point where I can put them all in the ground outside.

Grow baby, grow!!
