More Seeds and Some Seedlings

Posted By on March 5, 2016

The first seeds of the year have sprouted. 🙂 We noticed the first few on Thursday and even more yesterday and today. The strawflowers were up on Thursday so they only took 3 days and several onion pots are poking through after 6 days. The shallots have started and our Tokyo spring onions are by far doing the best. They sprouted after 5 days.

The cinnamon is definitely keeping the soil looking cleaner and we haven’t had any mold start yet.

We also took some time today and started a bunch more flowers and all of our pepper seeds for the year. The flowers were planted in the same way as before, each variety to a pot and the seedlings will be pricked out and potted on when they are bigger. The peppers were planted in cells, one variety to a cell. Perhaps 10-12 seeds per cell. Some of our pepper seed has not germinated the best so we over planted to make sure we get something from each this year. We will only keep the strongest 2-3 from each.

  1. Good luck with your seedlings! My seeds just sprouted too (a bit late, but better than never 🙂 I was just thinking to add some more flowers in my garden and the ideas you’ve shared seem to be perfect for me. Thank you for all this nice info!
