My seedlings are looking great so far. The artichokes and leeks are quite grown and the tomatoes and peppers are just starting germinating. I have no more room under the lights and I am sure by this time last year I had my seedling in the greenhouse. I hope I can move them this Saturday, when we start having more mild temperatures.
I couldn't resist and I bought more seeds. I know, I said I was not going to buy seeds anymore but I found a pack of shiso (Perilla) in a yard sale and I got it. Then I went to Earth Fare and found many heirloom seeds and I got a colorful quinoa and lettuce romaine freckles. I already sowed the lettuce. I put the quinoa seeds in the fridge to improve germination.
I have been finding lots of unusual seeds in the stores this year. Lots of heirloom seeds that were available only by catalog, now I find can quite a few of them at big box stores. I guess this is all consequence of increase interest in gardening. More people are discovering the countless benefits of gardening!
Amisha is my inspiration. She makes beautiful sweaters, very difficult ones with zipper and hood. It is even more impressive knowing she is a self taught knitter. I don't think I will ever be as good as she is, but I am having fun and I think I will end up with something wearable. That works for me.
