Seed, Water, Sprout


With March temperatures in the upper 40s and low 50s around here, I know spring isn't far away. So, let the seed starting begin! I'm using a 72-cell tray that sits on top of a water soaked mat with a drip tray beneath to keep the cells moist. 

I've planted:
Sweet Pea, String Bean, Morning Glory, Moon flower, Wildflower mix, Columbine, Basil, Parsley and an annual Black-Eyed Susan mix.


My kids are loving watching the sprouts grow taller every day.
As the sprouts grew, I moved some of the vines into bigger pots:


On the left are the Morning Glory plants. On the right near the window are the Moon flower and String Bean plants. In the foreground on the right I am growing geraniums and impatiens by stem cuttings.

Everything is growing pretty well so far, but I still have a while to go before I can plant them outside. Hopefully by then I'll have many strong and healthy plants to enjoy!
