This past week, I was blessed with harvesting produce from two different gardens.
One was from one of my vegetable gardens…
What if you could create a small world in a container?
Have you ever seen one?
If you have ever seen a terrarium, then you have.
Last week, as we arrived at the family farm for our weekly dinner gathering, I was greeted by the following sight when I entered the dining room…
|Chopsticks are a great tool for placing items inside a terrarium.|
You simply throw the seed ball(s) on a bare area where you would like to see plants grow.
I will talk more about the festival in a future post 🙂
For the Southwest, I recommend using wildflower seeds (California poppies, lupine, red flax), sunflowers, desert marigold, brittlebush, penstemon or globe mallow in your seed balls.
*I don’t recommend throwing seed balls into areas that already have vegetation growing, such as natural areas because the new seeds can compete and overtake the native plants.
So what do you think? Are seed balls a gardening trend that you can get into? I enjoy making my own seed balls and teaching others how to make them too!
Is you home decorated for fall yet? I am still working on getting my house ready for the fall holidays.
You’ll never guess what I made this Christmas tree out of…
