I’ve been a bit negligent in posting about my seedlings. I’ve slowly been sowing seeds this year, not too eager to get overgrown seedlings as the snow remains on the ground. Besides the greens started in January, the sowing began with leeks, onions, peppers, and artichokes in mid-February. The onions included Red Marble, Varisty, and Chinese Green onion. The Leeks are American Flag Leeks.
The sweet peppers sprouted with the heat mat and dome to keep things moist, but none of the hot peppers did. I re-seeded them this last week.
The artichokes are an experiment this year. I only planted 6 seeds and only 3 germinated. Here they are with their cute spiky leaves developing.
In late February I started hardy greens: tatsoi, 3 varieties of kale (Rainbow, Lacinato & Red kale), romaine lettuce, parsley & cilantro.
And just last week I began my 7 early tomato plants. I started one each of Sungold, Cosmonaut Volkov, Black Prince, Cherokee Purple, Purple Calabash, Green Zebra, and Mark Twain. These have not sprouted yet. Next up on my schedule are Brussels Sprouts, Broccoli, Swiss Chard and more lettuce later this week.
