Starting Seeds Indoors!

Spring is here!!!

Well, kind of.

Still, despite the "sprinter" weather we have in southeast Wisconsin, the time has come to start some of my seeds for this year's outdoor harvest.

  • Sugar baby watermelon

  • Early golden acre cabbage

  • German chamomile

  • Poblano peppers

  • Pepperoncini

  • California wonder peppers

  • Jalapenos

  • Beefsteak tomatoes (saved seeds from West Allis farmers market purchase)

  • Coriander

  • Planted seeds in recycled pulp (paper) egg cartons filled with a mix of seed starter mix and potting soil. Mulched with peat moss. Put in greenhouses (added second): some in south-facing greenhouse and some in east-facing greenhouse.

    Spinach and lettuce are growing but looked pale and wilty, probably from overmisting and heat inside green house. Brought them outside for afternoon in full sun (it's approx. 55 – 60degrees outside) for about two hours. The spinach looked much happier afterward. Not so sure about the lettuce.
