Starting Seeds

seedling shelves IMG_5316

My shelves are tucked in the corner of my garage this year. It stays about 60F out there. I think this low temp will be good for the seedlings. I’m thinking they’ll grow a bit slower and end up a bit stockier and less leggy than when they were indoors at 70F. We’ll see.

Here’s the list of what I’ve planted so far: my 2016 planting list. I’m having more trouble than usual with failed germination this year. It’s the old seed. I’m noting the ones that don’t come up and throwing out the packages. Mostly it’s the ones from back around 2009. (I suppose that’s pretty old – I love to save seed.)
