Too Cold? - Started Inside!

Category: Just stuff | Posted: Mon Apr 12, 2010 2:48 pm

Wow I've been gone for a week and there is so much reading to catch up on! Guess I better get better organized with my time so I can stay updated.

Here's where I am at today on my starts in my "fake" greenhouse. Except the celery is in the house.

Today I found some time to get a few quick pics of some stuff I started from seed. First time ever doing this and I must say I am pretty thrilled. I have used every kind of container imaginable and it has been effective to say the least. Now I just have to get them through the next 3 weeks and we can plant. Hallelujah! Not bad for a first timer in my humble opinion. My mouth is watering already for good, fresh veggies.

Our budget didn't allow for a real greenhouse this year as we had hoped, so we converted a spare room in our garage to make do. It has worked out quite well, if I say so myself.

I'm so anxious to start planting in the real garden. Got to play in the dirt yesterday getting some trellises ready for the stuff I grow vertical. Woohoo - felt so good!

Figured I'd try! ( photo / image / picture from Newfpaws's Garden )

This has been an experiment and a half.

Funky container, but great tomato shoots at 10 days.

I'm telling ya, I used anything to plant in I could find!

Round relish tray with herbs. I have one compartment in here that is Dragon's Egg Cucumbers that I just started. They haven't sprouted yet.

More 'maters!

Purple Majesty Millet - should be pretty!

A few squash - but by no means all!

Started some Fireball marigolds 3 days ago, have one tiny little shoot already. Red peppers are doing very well in their styrofoam cups. Yarrow and Russian Sage (that I saved seed from last year) going crazy. I am a happy camper right now.

Non gardeners can never really understnd just how good it is to feel earth in your hands and watch those first seedlings appear can they? I see that you're a lot like me - using everything available to plant in. The only thing that's sacred around here is hubby's pint mug for his tea!!

Looks like you have plants everywhere!

I do have plants everywhere but in the garden. HaHa But soon...

Eileen - my hubby is on the road a lot so nothing he owns is sacred. I'm eyeballing a saw case for some seeds....HeeHee

Well started is half finished they say, and you're certainly off. :D
