I planted the first batch of seeds planted in the greenhouse today. My new approach is underway. The starter containers (egg cartons, toilet paper tubes lined with a sheet of newspaper) are ugly but free. We'll see how they work. I also have some of those pressed peat starter containers.
These seeds were started SFG-style, which is to say "only one seed" per spot. Makes me a little squeamish, but he warned us ahead of time.
Here's the list of stuff started at LF-6 (ie, last average frost date minus six weeks):
- Hybrid "Delicious" Tomato
- Hybrid "Super Sweet 100" cherry tomato
- Heirloom "Brandywine" tomato - my first heirloom attempt
- Hybrid "Jelly Bean" grape tomato
- scrounged green bell pepper
- scrounged yellow bell pepper
- scrounged red bell pepper
The newspaper mulch was down throughout all the freezes, covered with leaf mulch; the overhead bar for securing vertical twine for training is in place. Will take pics of anything that sprouts.
