I have four new babies this morning. No, I'm not quite as good as "Octomom" but, unlike that new mother of eight, I'm not planning on hawking a reality show to TV, and I'm not going to use my blog to ask for donations to raise my four.
They left their "incubator" this morning and went under the light with their four Tumbling Tom siblings.
It took these California Wonder 300 TMR (bell) peppers eleven days to sprout. They were kept in their mini-greenhouse at 80-85F, sitting on an old heating pad that was turned to low. I planted six seeds, and if the other two sprout it will be a really tight fit under my single 2-foot light.
I'm also trying to pre-sprout six more pepper seeds, placed on a damp paper towel and sealed in a ZipLoc bag. I hope we get some warm, sunny days so the tomatoes can go outside to make room for all the peppers!
