So far, so good...

Well, so far, so good on the indoor seed starting front! I'd say that I've been having about a 93% germination rate overall. Some things are much better than others. I'd probably be around 98% germination rate if the celery and celeriac would germinate better, but I know that is to be expected with some things. So far, my seedlings consist of: piracicaba broccoli, purple peacock broccoli, snow crown cauliflower, melissa savoy cabbage, diamante celeraic, golden self-blanching celery, lincoln leeks, organic king seig leeks, halona muskmelon, organic sweet dakota rose watermelon, and gigante d'italia parsley. I started some cajun delight okra, organic cajun jewel okra, oliver brussels sprouts, and some more melons today. Next weekend, I'll be starting some peppers and basil. Then I'll be about done with my seed starting indoors. I hope it dries up enough pretty soon so we can till up the garden. Before we know it, it will be time to plant the peas, spinach, and other cool season veggies in the garden! I can't wait!

Wow! Looks like the seeds are doing well. Nice job for your first attempt. Maybe we'll have to try that some day. Good luck with the rest. Hopefully only a few more weeks until it's time to start planting!

Glad to hear they're doing so well! I wish we had better weather here so I can garden. I'm so jealous!
