Seed Starting 2012

Tags: 

Given the extreme non-winter we've been having - started my pansy seeds yesterday! Yeah, well, I probably would have started pansy seeds this week anyway, if I had 'em... But I'm thinking they'll go out early this year.

Because I like dreaming about my spring garden in January, these are the pansy varieties I started. Wish me luck!

acquarelle flambe red pansy chianti mix pansy pandora's box pansy (they always turn out much more purple for me somehow...)

And some terra cotta flambe seeds left over from last year.  Those didn't germinate.

Trying to move out some of

Trying to move out some of the older ornamentals before I need space for the tomatoes. Too early for coleus to survive outdoors, tho. The impatiens would probably make it. Already plugged three bigger vinca into the garden - frost won't kill vinca, though a freeze probably would.

Switching to summer crops

Switching to summer crops now. Peppers already potted up, and eggplant and tomato seeds started.

 

Beth, fwiw - I tried planting my old freebie Park banana pepper seeds again. Two years old, but still sprouted great! Those peppers were really productive... and tasted almost as good as the carmens and costa ricans.

With two weeks forecast with

With two weeks forecast with no temps below 30° - possibly no frosts - seedling shelf got pretty empty. The Connecticut shoreline is getting a spring growing season this year! It's been a few years. (It's not a growing season if it lasts less than 45 days. )

Yay, Beth!

I'm pretty sure my early tomato has set its first fruit. The first pepper flower has opened... We have very low hopes for first pepper flowers, tho.

Started putting out my pansies today! And planted peas - pre-germinated. That trick where you soak the pea seeds for like 8 hours, then rinse them several times a day until you see roots. Only takes a few days, and I've had rotten results before getting them to germinate in the ground.

 Got my extra early tomatoes

 Got my extra early tomatoes seeded and sprouted. I think the one variety is better bush, too. Not Park, think Burpie. Interesting. It'll be cool to compare.
