Happy Thursday and here I am with my tip of the week for Happy Gardening 🙂
So, when you sow seeds, isn’t that great to see them sprouting early.
Here is a way to make that happen.
1. Soaking in water or milk for 3-5 hours
When the seeds are dried they develop lot of hard layers. Soaking them in milk(lactose) or water( pref. luke warm) helps in softening the layers and the top layer usually breaks and it helps in quick sprouting.
2. Keep the soil warm
Once you sow the seeds it is important to keep the soil warm and consistent. During days the soil is warm but in the nights when it cools down, it takes lot of time to warm up next morning. So covering the pot with a cling wrap/thin plastic sheet with tiny roles(to let it breathe) would really help in keeping it warm consistently and quick sprouting.
This really helps for all seeds and I was successful with Fenugreek(Methi), Fennel, Tulasi (Holy Basil), Eggplant & Okra.
Happy Easter & Happy weekend!!

Hi, I am very delighted that you stopped by! Welcome to Creative ME!!! I 'm a wife to an amazing hubby and recently mother to an adorable little munchkin :-), an Asian(Indian) native, nomad for a while and now currently @Portland, Oregan. Recently relocated from The Grand Canyon State and still adjusting to the gloomy weather here...
When we first we moved to US(2012) ,our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started.
You must be wondering HOW?
I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs.
Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav!
Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-)
And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :)
And if you like my blog, please come back and also don't forget to tell your friends :)
Lastly, if you have a fun and functional craft or project or even a simple recipe I want to hear….please let me know and I can feature, down the line we will make Creative ME to WE..;)
