Ceckery's blog: Finally starting seeds

Posted on Mar 4, 2021 7:44 PM

Apparently I forgot to post when I started seeds last weekend. Got herbs, peppers, onions, ground cherry, and Cape gooseberry seeds started.

My seed starting supplies. It was so nice out I decided to work outside, at least to fill the containers. I put in the seeds inside out of the wind.

Seeds added, sprayed down with water, then covered with plastic wrap to maintain humidity.

More herbs today. Looks like they got a bit too damp so I sprinkled some cinnamon on them (lots of people say it helps with dampening off). I'm going to add a fan as well.
Added 2 more trays of peppers and herbs today.

Outside my strawberries are starting to show signs of life. Unfortunately not many survived the extra heat last year so I'll probably buy more. Now I'm looking at buying both pineberry and strawberry online, and possibly blueberry. Might get blueberry locally though. Haven't decided.
