A Few Vegetable Garden Seeds Planted

While this post might be more interesting to me (for record keeping purposes) than anyone else it contains the list of seed varieties I planted on Monday Feb. 15, 2010. They were planted in peat pots and seed starting medium and are currently under lights indoors in a roughly 70 degree environment. Warmer temperatures might hasten the germination process but I don’t use heat mats. Not that heat mats aren’t a great idea I just never got around to buying any! Starting these seeds in mid-February will give them a good 8 weeks to grow before mid-April.

  1. Now the fun begins!! Will you walk holes in the soles of your shoes looking at these like I do?

  2. Darla,

    I checked them twice yesterday, one day after planting with no real hope of that kind of crazy germination. I would say the answer to your question is… definitely!

  3. With a foot of snow expected before the day ends and winds high enough to cause total whiteouts, reading about your seed plantings is like a soothing, hopeful elixir for the gardening soul. :-) Good luck with them!

  4. I guess this is the only gardening activity going on, as it is so cold outside. Good luck with your seedlings!

  5. I need to get going on seeds… haven't even started any!

  6. I need to get out & plant cool weather plants. Still very cold here but when it warms up boy look out.
