Father's Garden Last week we began a discus- sion of sowing vegetable and flower seeds directly to the soil as opposed to starting them inside and transplanting to the garden after they reached a certain point in their development. We men- tioned that soil preparation is so important for germination and de- velopment, for seeds must make good contact with the earth in or- der to germinate. When you scatter sowing seeds such as lettuce, carrots, or pop- pies, it is helpful to mix the seeds with a handful of sand or vermicu- lite. The sand or white vermicu- lite allows for better seed distribu- tion as well as marking where seeds have already been sown, preventing oversowing the same areas. Thinning and transplant- ing are reduced with better seed distribution and more space be- tween plants. Seedlings will need elbow room in which to grow or the result will be fewer plants of poor quality. Difficult as it may be to bend, stoop or kneel, thinning and snip- ping off excess seedlings are es- sential to a good stand of plants. The first thinning should be shortly aRer germination, with a second and third needed at 2-4 week intervals as the seedlings grow and mature. In the early life of the seedlings adequate space is a key factor in determining the plant's subsequent development, so weeds must also be kept under control. The number of days to germi- nation will be more variable from outdoor sewings than from con- trolled sewings indoor due to tem- perature fluctuations, so "patience is a virtue". Other factors which affect outdoor sewings are birds and squirrels seeking out and eat- ing seeds, animals digging in the garden, heavy rains that may wash the seeds away, late freezes that kill off just-germinated seed- lings, or allowing the soil to dry out between waterings and/or rainfall. Planting seeds too deeply produces poor germination a rule of thumb is that the seed should be planted no deeper than, three times the width of itself. Many times, when Father planted small seeds, to help hold Continued on Page 20 I IIIIII IIIIIII FEEDER Well Ully 12th Hsgerstown, MD. Exit 29 off 1-70 (30i) 733-8120 III I I
