Time to Play in the Dirt! Starting Seedlings Indoors


Summer might be a few months away still.


But even though the days are short, and the ground is frozen, it’s never too early to begin thinking about the growing season.


After all, most people only get a few precious weeks in the garden!


Between family, work, travel, hobbies, and so on, us gardeners want to maximize our days in the sun enjoying the beauty of our plants. One easy way to do so? Start your seedlings indoors.


Why Start Seeds Indoors

At Kristy K Organics, we encourage everyone to play in the dirt…or more specifically, soil.


Our 100% natural soil amendments make getting a jumpstart on spring outdoor planting easy. From premium organic compost to rice hulls and coconut coir, we’ve got the recipe to get those little seedling babies germinating ASAP.


So, why bother starting seeds off inside the house?


Longer Growing Season

First, it extends the growing season. June, July, and August are typically the months when most flowers and vegetables are in full bloom. But giving those tiny seeds an early boost can actually result in a more fruitful harvest. In fact, some crops need to begin their lives indoors.


For example, warm season veggies like:

  • Tomato

  • Cucumber

  • Pepper

  • Eggplant

  • Zucchini

Starting these seedlings indoors leads to a bigger, tastier, more bountiful harvest – hooray!


Cost-effective


Another good reason to get seeds planted sooner rather than later has to do with your wallet. As any frequent greenhouse shopper knows, buying young plants in spring can be expensive.


On the other hand (or should we say, glove?) seeds are cheap.


For a few dollars, you can purchase several bags of different seed varieties. This saves your baby plants growing time – and you money!


Safe for People, Kids, and Pets


Third, starting seeds indoors means no chemicals. Unlike bringing mature plants into the garden which may have been sprayed with harmful substances, you will have 100% control over the soil and watering of your sprouts. Rest easy knowing your plants are safe for both eating and handling.
