I started some plants from seed a few weeks ago..hmmmm March 20th. Some onions, some lettuce (don't ask me what I was thinking there) some tomatoes and some peppers. Here's what my tray looks like now.
The tomatoes are really the only thing that I'm paying any attention to....for obvious reasons :-)I planted two types of tomato plants Earlianna and Beefsteak. The Earlianna plants are the ones here and they look much nicer than the Beefsteak ones at this point. I only ended up with three of the Beefsteak type germinating, while all the Earlianna did very well (so far) and also, the Beefsteak ones have gotten taller and a little more spindly.
These just popped up this morning! I had lost all hope for the peppers, but must say I'm still pleased, since I only paid $14.22 for all my seed starting mix, little potting tray and all the seeds (I got more seeds than just these...I got all the regular garden seeds too..except for a few that I couldn't find like sugar snap peas). Anyways, I figured that the peppers just weren't good seeds and wouldn't germinate, but when I moved the tray under the skylight this morning I noticed that this one little cell had 2 pepper seedlings in it. Maybe I'll be able to grow a pepper plant after all. I'm still doing better than I expected. I really expected this seed starting business to be just a fun attempt, and that I'd end up buying the tomato and pepper plants. We'll see, maybe some of these will survive long enough to make it out to the garden!
