Seedling Progress

Seedlings

This is the 6th person at my kitchen table right now!  More like the 5th and 6th person since it’s taking up more space.  Family meals have moved to the dining room full time.

Does my kitchen look cluttered, messy, disorganized?  Perhaps to the naked eye, not to me though.  I see baby seedlings ready to grow into full size plants soon and then bear fruits and vegetables all summer long.  I can’t wait!

The tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli and kohlrabi have all sprouted open and been thinned. I’m still waiting on all the peppers and eggplant.  My mouth is watering waiting for garden fresh tomatoes!

I’m soaking some okra seeds in water right now.  I’ll plant them later this afternoon.  I also still have a few other seeds to start in the house, mostly herbs.

Do you plant a garden?  Do you start your seeds indoors?  I still feel relatively new to this whole gardening thing even though we’ve had a garden for years now.  There is always something to learn and new fruits and vegetables to try growing.  Until then I’ll keep an eye on these beauties, rotating and watering them, watching them grow and smelling the tomato plants…

      We never had a problem with tomato seeds and a few others. I try as much as I can. If it doesn’t work I usually end up at the store buying plants too. In the end it’s fresh produce in my garden and that’s what I want most.

      I got the okra going and the peppers are coming rough the dirt now. The herbs will start in small pots when I find the time. In our climate they can go outside any day now anyway. Hope you have a great gardening season!

        Thanks Gretchen, I hope so too! So far it’s starting out unseasonably warm for us. It will be interesting to see if it stays that way, but still won’t plan on anything permanently outside until the end of May.

    Everything looks great, Gretchen, and definitely worth moving family suppers to the dining room for a spell. You have such a nice variety of seedlings, too.. You’re going to have a great garden again this year.

      So worth eating in the dining room! We eat there anyway, just not every dinner. The peppers are starting to peep through the soil, very excited to get this garden growing outside.
