I just checked the weather forecast and we're looking at lows in the teens over the next five days. It doesn't feel like spring. But, it is time to start thinking about this year's garden. I need to start seeds now so I'll have plants to go in the ground in April.
I pulled out my seed tray and some left over peat pods from last year.
I pulled out my seeds tonight and found two bags of pepper seeds that I saved from peppers that I grew. One of the bags was labeled 2012 and the other had no label. I don't know how old they are.
peppers through the winter didn't work. I cut the dead peppers off and scattered seeds all over the pot. Then I moved the pots into my greenhouse.
Since these seeds are old I have no idea how well they will germinate.
If they do end up doing well I'll let the strongest one survive and cut
the rest off. I normally just start seeds in my garage and then move them to the greenhouse. I don't know if starting them in the greenhouse will work or not. It'll be an interesting experiment.
I really need to print out a map of my garden and plan it out like I did last year. That way I know how many plants I need. Starting peppers and tomatoes now is good enough. I can start everything else later.
