First Seed Starts of the Spring!

Seedlings 3-25-08I’ve never started my own seedlings, so this is making me very excited. About a week ago I filled some seed starter trays with potting soil, put some seeds on top of the soil, covered the seeds with more soil and watered with a fine spray. I kept the tray in my front kitchen window which gets some good daytime sunlight. Five days later, I went away for the weekend and nothing had poked up out of the soil, but I came home to sprouts! This first photo was taken tonight, Tuesday, March 25. The next photo was taken two days ago on Sunday; notice how much they have grown in two days! (Note that I did rotate the tray to distribute the sunlight.)

Seedlings 3-23-08There are some Black Aztec Sweet Corn, Golden Bush Zucchini- a yellow zucchini, Golden Scallopini Bush Squash- yellow summer squash, Sweet Dumpling Squash-the black and white striped ones, Arkansas Traveler Heirloom Tomato, Marvel Striped Tomato-an orange heirloom, Double Rich Tomato-red variety with lots of vitamin C, White Lisbon Bunching Onion- a green onion, some multi-colored Beauty Mix Phlox.
