1st: My sprouts as of today. The eggplant and potted cockscomb, the big guys in pots, are so handsome. My reseeded chard is coming sooo much more- this time I soaked the seeds for a bit before planting them, definitely worked.
The small clementine crate is a perfect planter! I put some flower sprouts I’d thinned out of the tray on the left in to that to see if they’d survive. Yes, I felt bad thinning out sprouts…c_c Some of the coleus plants there already have little purple spots on their cotyledons! Precious babbus.
2nd: This stage I’m calling “tangle buddies”. I think they’re leggy from not strong enough light. I blinked and suddenly big adult leaves whoaa.
3rd image: So what I thought were peppers last time were tomatoes, and my peppers hadn’t sprouted. They need warm soil so I’m using my laptop’s power adapter as a heat source for them and some Spanish flag since I don’t feel like getting reptile heat mats that go bad quickly.
4th: I have a use for my abundance of empty med bottles- seed storage! No more wondering if I’ll dump the dust-particle sized flower seeds in to the garden bin.
Used fish fertilizer for the first time. It’s not super stinky but there’s wiffs of nostalgia-of gutting freshwater fish we caught with my grandpa at the lake.
I’m addicted to these compressed peat pellet seed growing things. No buying pots or soil, store very small, get a refill of a ton for a few bucks, SPROUT ALL THE THINGS!
Last week I put soil in the pots outside, wooooo.
