The ones I sowed last weekend have sprouted!
Even tomatoe seeds sowed on Monday! All under lights in the basement.
It is always a big thrill to see the first sprouts!


And now it is Boo Hoo no petunia sprouts!???
They have died on me so I am starting over with petunias.

Such is Gardening sometimes.

You're right, Caroline. Those first sprouts are always a thrill!

(I'd better get busy sowing!)

Hurray! I know what you mean! When I start seeds, when I get up I grab a cup of coffee and check to see if there are any sprouts before I do anything else!

My only shelf with lights is in my bedroom. I don't have them on a timer, so they are the first thing I see in the morning when I turn the lights on, and the last thing at night when I turn the lights off.

And in-between, when I overwater them or play with their humidity tents.

I'm excited, too. I have 9 flats all sprouted, with a very few exceptions. I'm hoping I don't have to pot anything up too soon....our spring weather here is abysmal.

I started some too early again, and I have plants instead of sprouts!! My Agastache Apache Sun has flowers and I'm having a hard time finding room for everything that needs to go into larger pots.

I feel your pain, Teri. I have done that too many times. My mother is in northern MI and she started cucumbers about a month ago. What was she thinking?

I'm resorting to put them in the unheated sun room and leave 2 of those electric oil heated radiators on now and then. I'll be able to put my purple, lavender and blue shades of petunias with a center of Aster Liliput Blue Moon in the center. The metal table out there can hold lots of large pots.

Those oil filled heaters are great! I have one out in the GH....and one in my frigid bedroom!

Ha! And thanks for the reminder, Arlene: I need to start cucumbers! I did the same as your Mom one year, so now I usually forget till it's too late!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

I just seeded a small tray of petunias late Saturday. It's awfully late. I usually wintersow them, but it's so cold this year, I gave up and seeded a tray under lights. It's late and weather is still cold. They should begin to flower around August. Hilarious!

I have delphiniums up! So happy. I actually had the seeds in the freezer and almost forgot about them.

And I threw some Globe Amaranth, Strawberry Fields very old seed in to see what would happen so now I have a tray FULL of seedlings.

I am so jealous!! I want sprouts too!!

Maybe next week. After tonight we are supposed to be over 40 every night for 7 days! And low 50's during the day.

I'm going to move my jugs into full sun to try and speed up the process!
