Today I started my first tomato seeds ever. I have no idea how they'll do or if they'll even sprout, but it's something I've been looking forward to since last year. Today I started:
Cherokee Purple - from Dan
Black Cherry -from Dan
I started five of each even though I'd only need two. I'm sure some won't sprout. I put them up on the refrigerator to germinate, but then they'll have to go under the light in the basement, which can get rather cold. Hopefully they'll still fare well, if not just grow slowly.
I also started some Bok Choy from Thomas and those German Blue radish seeds from Stefaneener. I direct sowed those, so we'll see if they germinate or not. I'm hopeful.
The shared seeds from everyone has also made it possible for me to fulfil another one of my goals this year - branching out! Thanks, everyone.
The strawberry bushes made it through the cold snap just fine. I still need to transplant that one last one now that it seems like the ants have moved on, but I don't have soil left. I may just rogue some from one of the raised beds since it's not that large of a pot to begin with.
Send me sweet tomato sprouting vibes! I'm very excited.
