to see DTSQs way!
Ok all you seedy characters out there, listen up! Get your
seedlings started approximately 6 weeks before planting time in
your area. Those little mini greenhouse trays are good for
a sunny window if you donít have a setup like me. (I
have a number of professional greenhouses you know!)
Well Mirtha not everyone is as blessed as you are so I save the
clear muffin containers or cake pans with the clear lids from
the grocery store and put some soil in the empty (clean) cups
and sow a few seeds in each one. For more hints, see Auntie's
Seedling Helper page.
Well how do you know the ground is ready for planting?
Iíll take this one Queenie.
According to legend (after all I am one!), wait till the moon is

success of my garden, my lush fruits and vegetables, my abundant
flowers and foliage.
Tell me Ė tell me! I have to know! (Maybe I could
use this on my show!)
Ok, ok, - donít get your knickers in a twist! It is
actually very simple and cost free.
HmmmÖ.no merchandise tie-ins Ė I donít think I like this!
Donít worry Ė I am POSITIVE you will find a way. Ok
now, letís see, itís similar to yours, in that you have to
wait until dark and sneak out into your garden. And make
sure your neighbors donít see you. You have to do this

Well you do have the best zucchinis in town, Iíll say
that! Oh, I donít think I can try that! I always
have a TV crew following me around. (But it sounds like
