Seed Starting 2015

This year I went ahead and splurged on a heat mat, since I had such disastrous failure starting peppers in our chilly basement last year. So far it has been successful. After almost a month, only 13 of the 36 cells I planted failed to sprout.

As it stands right now, these are my spouts, with the year the seeds are from in parentheses followed by the ratio of living plants to seeds planted.




I am planning on transplanting a few of the spindly tomatoes into slightly bigger pots (where I can plant them deeper). After I get that done it will be time for round two, and possibly some outside planting. Sugar snap peas and greens here we come!

Side Note: They definitely look dry in that picture! I’m off to water them….
