Indoors, I have a flat of peppers and tomatoes. I'm only starting seeds of Sungold, Black Cherry and Una Hartsock tomatoes (all cherry tomatoes), as I plan on purchasing my main tomato plants this year. I'm going buy determinate varieties, and only 8 plants total. Last year I way overplanted all of my tomatoes, and they were so crowded the yields were not good at all. I'm going back to better spacing, and shorter (easier to manage) plants. I'll also keep at least 2 of the Sungold and 1 each of the Una Hartsock and Black Cherry, and the other cherries will go to Son John.
Another full flat of peppers, some with 2 plants per cell. I counted over 90 pepper seedlings, and they are still popping up! Both of my sons and Daughter Amy want pepper plants this year, so that's probably not going to be too many for all of us. Varieties I planted this year are Early Jalapeno, Grand Bell Mix, Happy Yummy (sweet & hot), Horizon Orange, Quadrato Rosso D'Asti, Red Marconi and Quadrato Geallo D'Asti.
No more room in the flats for the overflow of basil, parsley and one last cup of peppers.
Out in the garden shed, where it's much cooler, I have lettuce, cabbage broccoli and leeks growing under lights.
Also 36 cells of mini-marigolds.
And a flat of spinach with very poor germination (20 of 72 cells so far). I will be doing direct seeding of the spinach as soon as I can get the bed prepped, hopefully sometime this week.
On Tuesday I did take time to plant a bed of the lettuce seedlings, as I was running out of room under the shed lights. They're difficult to see in this photo, but they are looking quite healthy, and with yesterday's rain and temps heading into the 60s next week, I expect them to really take off. The garlic, behind the lettuce bed, is about 8" high now.
Today I'm staying inside, toasty warm, making carrot and parsnip seed mats.
