First seeds

Yesterday I sowed our first small lot of herb and vegetable seeds for planting out in the garden and in bigger pots later. In the past, I have only grown things from bought seedlings, so this is all a bit new for me. As you can see in the picture, I'm trying out the 'toilet roll' method described in Lolo Houbein's beautiful book One Magic Square. The thing I like about the book is the use of existing and recycled materials like butter tubs and milk bottles wherever possible, rather than buying specialist equipment for seed raising and vegetable growing. Fingers crossed some of the seeds will actually germinate...
