Pretend this is dated April 23
I have been neglecting the blog for awhile, but only because we've been doing so much work!
The following photos were taken on April 23 towards the end of my indoor seed starting. Everything is now in the garden except the tomatoes and sunflowers...I'll try to get out today and take updated pictures.
The entire seed-starting rack. Not quite at the fullest point of the spring.
Parsley & Chard seedlings. These ended up planted together in containers, since I also planted chard from seed in the garden.
My onions. They're a little sad. Next year I'm starting them in potting soil instead of seed starting mix, since I hate the concept of fertilizing. I've also learned to plant them a lot closer together to save room.
Basil in the front, peppers in the back.
An entire flat of peppers - Blue Nose Bell, Garden Sunshine, Jalepeno, Aurora, Candlelight
Tomatoes. I planted Sheboygan, Amish Paste, Italian, Blondkopfchen, and Yellow.
Leeks, more tomatoes, and some peppers that never made it - started too late.
I got antsy in January and started some lettuce seed to see how it would grow under the lights. It definitely got long, skinny leaves that weren't very crisp. I transplanted these into some containers, and now they seem to be doing ok. It really didn't give me a headstart on my lettuce, though.
