Hello!, this will be my first time growing and i was wondering if i could just plant the seeds directly into the ground in my backyard after germinating them. i'm on a really tight budget so i can't really afford too much stuff.

i was also thinking of getting the soil in one section of my backyard that is used to grow lettuce and putting it into 5 gallon pots and using that to grow the weed'

edit - i just found a couple of unopened bags of ""Earthgro Steer Manure Blend" if it would help any Posted Image

i live in southern california and will be growing in my backyard btw

^I used to sell that stuff for a dollar a bag at home depot. OH! I just remembered. You can get "cull" bags on a pallete for really cheap. I think like 7 random bags(some expensive soils) for five bucks...at least at the one I worked at.

but, ya. you should probably add a bit more to your soil.

I believe I've heard people refer to straight compost as "noob mix" in this section before.

What is in your garden is an unknown quantity. Sure you can put your sprouts directly in it, but if it contains little nutrition you won´t get much back. Best to mix some fert, horseshit or wormcasts, into the soil. Give your plants a chance.
