Seedlings!

March 16, 2010

I started my first batch of seeds at the beginning of the month, and they’re off and running.

Artichoke. Will it be green or purple?

The artichokes are having marginal success; not all the seeds are germinating.

The strawberries have emerged, and they’re so tiny I can hardly believe it. I couldn’t even begin to capture a decent photo with my lens.

I started broccoli, lettuces, and eggplant last Thursday, and they’ve been up for a few days.

Lettuce, starting strong.

The eggplant was a total whim, and so far, it’s a dud. Which is kind of a relief. First, I might be short on space for ten eggplant plants. Secondly, I’ve read that cultivating eggplants from seed is a tall order. I saved the seeds from a fruit I bought at the farmer’s market, so if it doesn’t work, I won’t be disappointed.

Looking at the calendar, I see that basil and peppers need to be started this week. But the light shelf is out of room! I’ll have to pick up some new lights and bulbs on Saturday.

On the production line.
