Time for some updates! We’ve had a busy several weeks here…. first, my gardening adventure. I do have some green things showing up in my outside garden! I was starting to wonder….. As for inside, the fluorescent light (a simple under-cabinet light that my husband attached to a portable “frame”) has been amazing. Here are my little plants, started from seed on February 25. There are tomatoes, green peppers, basil, and cantaloupe in there….
And a week later….
I still can’t believe it! I’ve never had indoor starts look this good. Here are pictures from today….
Now, my question for the gardening experts is…….. what AM I going to do with them for the next month? I’m not set up to transplant 30 plants into larger pots! But if that’s what I need to do, then I will.
I’m surprised (pleasantly) also that so many seeds actually sprouted. I’m going to have to clip the weaker plant in each section (I don’t want to!) soon. Only 2 or 3 sections failed to sprout either seed.
I credit Artistic Gardens for that fantastic rate. I highly recommend their seeds. You can get “sample packs” of 10-50 seeds for $.35 each. I had plenty of each seed because I’m not a farm! My seed order total was $12.50 (that included shipping) and included the 4 varieties of tomatoes and one variety each of green peppers, basil, and melon that you see in the pictures, as well as 2 varieties of beans, 4 varieties of lettuce, and feverfew, rosemary, calendula, radishes, cucumber, lemon grass, and peas!
So, if you have any advice about leaving the plants as they are or transplanting them, please leave me a comment! THANKS!! 🙂
