  • Just curious…aren't you starting a bit early for your zone? I'm in Plymouth and wasn't planning on starting tomatoes and eggplant until March 1st…

  • You certainly are on top of starting seedlings. I guess I better start setting up my yogurt cups and soil and get my seeds ready. By ready, I go through all my left over seeds from last year, decide which are still viable and then use them. Also, incorporate some seeds that I have saved. I fill in with a few new seed packets that I don't have yet but want to grow. I don't use lights just sunshine through windows. I set the yogurt cups close to the window ledges and it works out just great. I enjoy your posts!– barbara

  • Yes, I am too early. Tomatoes should be planted 6 weeks before the last frost, Eggplants 6-8 weeks. If you plant earlier, plants will need to be transplanted into big pots before planting out. And from my experience last year, even if you start with bigger plants, you still get your first tomatoes at the same time with early started plants.

    NEVERTHELESS, I tired of waiting!! I only started a few eggplants and tomatoes. I have 9 little tomatoes sprouts and 4 eggplants.

    It is now 9 weeks before the last spring frost for my garden. A perfect time for sowing onion, parsley, thyme, celery, celeriac, kale, broccoli and lettuce.

  • I too am tired of waiting and have started sowing seeds.

    Can't wait to see your pics, mine have not sprouted yet and I am becoming impatient!
