Planting begun!
I love that my preparations for gardening include bringing home Styrofoam peanuts and coffee grounds from work & frecycling kitty litter pails (in order, in lieu of rocks, as fertilizer/soil conditioner, and as planters (because the litter our cats use comes in bags)).

Oh, and poking holes in Chinese take-out containers (the plastic ones, not the paper ones).

I have planted my first seeds, leftovers, for the most part, from past years, so I overplanted something between 4 to 1 and 12 to 1. Warming on the second heater are three plastic containers with germinating (I hope) seeds for Roma tomatoes, jalapeño & habanero peppers, three kinds of basil (a pack containing lemon & lime basil, and then a "spicy globe" basil) and parsley (Italian flat-leaf) - things we know from past experience that we will use. I'm pretty excited... yippy, actually. Very bouncy over three pins of wet dirt and coffee grounds.

:-)

Now all we need to do is find the lamp portion of our grow-light rig.

Last year, I found this site, "How much does a garden really save." I'm contemplating doing the same thing for my mini-garden this year.

So far, loosely rounding, I've spent $3.50 on seeds and $8.00 on dirt.
