The previous owners left us 3-4 huge clay pots that I need to get under plates for before they are used for 'gardening'. Last year I planted flowers which were beatuiful but I would like the pots to be of better use this year.
To begin I am going to need soil, preferably organic. I will be able to fill the bottom of the pots with organic material from the woods if I can't find any good cheap organic soil in Bemidji.
(I am still an amateur when it comes to buying organic supplies for gardening so hopefully I can find companies that practice what they preach.) Online I found a reasonably priced mix:

As for my seeds... I am going tohopefully be ordering my tomatoes, peppers and zucchini from:
I will post pictures when I get started. I am hoping to get the seeds planted and ready to go by the second week in April. I am lucky enough to have a south facing garage so I can get up in the morning, pull the pots out and let the seeds start their business. When I get home at night I can pull the pots back into the garage so they don't get too cold.
Will post pictures when this whole process starts!
