Burpee Self-Watering Seed Starting System Tutorial for Brassicas | Cool-Weather #Gardening

Happy New Year! I used the Burpee Self-Watering Seed Starting System for my Brassicas, which are cool-weather vegetables, such as cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, collard greens, and kale to name a few. I started these seeds in October 2022, and they are going strong in my Southern California garden here in January 2023. This seed-starting system can be used throughout the year for starting all of your seeds indoors if you're trying to get a head start on the growing season. They are so convenient. I use this system for my summer vegetables as well. As far as my Brassicas, in this video, I do provide a quick update on how they are doing. I have been fertilizing them once a week because I have learned that they really enjoy being fertilized. I do see my broccoli starting to form, which is very exciting. If you're not quite ready to put vegetables outdoors, then this is a great option for you. I will be covering my raised beds with greenhouse-grade plastic if we get any ice in the forecast but brassicas can handle cooler temps in the 40s, which we don't go any lower than that here. Spring will be here before we know it, but for now, let's enjoy winter and all it brings. I look forward to your comments and learning from you this growing season in 2023. Stay warm and safe, and be well.
