My little tomato seeds have germinated! They have started popping out of their little holes and are unfolding into healthy young plants. Some other perennials I started from seed have too!
Spring has sprung and everyone is getting in the mood to plant things! With warm 70-80 degree days, it is almost too good to be true. Radishes, lettuce, onions, and other colder weather hardy vegetables can be planted now. The lettuce crop could be plentiful this year with multiple plantings throughout the summer! Yum yum!
As for tomatoes, peppers and other warmer weather crops, it’s best to start them indoors. Last year I tried to sow everything from seed right in the garden soil. My tomato crop was excellent, but my peppers not so much. The flowers and herbs I tried to grow from seed never came up, so this year I have tried a different method, a sort of hydroponic method seed starter kit. We will see how well the seeds germinate in the next few weeks!
