Day 1: 3 weeks later than planned

Category: Vegetable Gardening | Posted: Mon Mar 10, 2014 4:11 pm

So much for wanting to start my seeds last month!
Saturday, as in, this past Saturday. 3 weeks later.

Oh well.

I'm off to a rough start.
Sprained my ankle, so I couldn't very well be walking all over to get stuff together and then standing in the basement working on it. I'm getting a bit better now, so I made the trip to the store to get a heat mat and grow light. Nothing.
Thankfully, they had seed starting soil.
So, I planted my seeds in my little makeshift
mini-greenhouses (egg cartons in plastic chinese food containers) while I did the laundry. Then placed them atop the dryer while I dried. Hopefully the heat from that helped wake them up. Now, since the laundry is done, I have them atop the fish tanks for light and warmth and switch them to the window during the brightest, warmest part of the day. I hope that will do the trick until I can get what I need.
I'll attach pictures when I can get them together.

Thank you, Frank.
Missed the last step. Don't you hate when that happens? The real stink about it was that I thought about checking for one more step as I was taking the "last step".
Yep, I'm a moron.
