Sprouts!

Category: Vegetable Gardening | Posted: Sat Mar 15, 2014 5:06 pm

Everything is sprouting except the peppers, eggplant, and watermelon. I took the covers off the sprouted ones and placed them in the front window, where they will get plenty of light. It is a bit windy today, so I'm hoping it doesn't get too cool. I'm keeping an eye on them and turned my daytime heat in the house up to 65.

I placed the three sleepy-heads on top of the light to get a little more warmth for about a half-hour, then put them back on the tank itself. I didn't want the seeds to get too warm. That should have done the trick this time.

Wow. I have to clean that algae! My snails are not doing their jobs! Like I said, a green thumb inside, brown outside. I hope all goes well this coming season.

Update:
Since taking this picture, I have reprimanded my snails for not doing their jobs and cleaned the algae myself.
It's just so difficult to find good help nowadays!

Ha!
The light trick worked!
2 out of 6 pepper seeds and 3 out of 6 eggplant seeds sprouted! Better than last year! It took 2 months to get these numbers last year.

Planted carrots, winter squash, and various herbs. All sprouted except Oregano. Hm.

Tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant all flopped.
Started new seeds this past Monday. Saw one sprout this morning.
