So I am starting a garden. It is all in containers... Right now it is all in the grow the seeds stage.. I have 3 pellets (that hydrate into seedling soil) in each Pint Sour Cream or Cottage cheese container.

I do have some growth now... so I will post pics in the next few days of the growth...
I am working on Germinating Tomatoes, Pumpkins, New Mexico Sandia Chile Peppers, and herbs. :) A container Garden is how I will be gardening this year. I also have possibly some Seed Potatoes, but I have not seen any growth on them yet. :-S The Potatoes in my Kitchen are growing better than the seed potatoes are :(

The Containers are 3 liter soda bottles from the Dollar Store -- I cut them in 2/3 and 1/3 and then braided cotton string and punched holes to hang them by... I will put the plant out the bottom neck... and then dirt above it....
