I have just planted some seeds earlier today, but I'm not very wise as to what I should be doing. I planted catnip, cilantro, and brussels sprouts. I was browsing on some other topics and saw people talking about heat pads and lights, but I'm a (stereotypically) poor college student who lives in a fairly tiny apartment. :[
I don't have any safe place to keep my seeds indoors but still get sunlight since I have two naughty kitties, so would it be okay to keep them outside (I live on the bottom floor apartment with a small patio outside and another patio covering ours) as long as the temperature is high enough? Would the patio covering my apartment be enough to act as shade against very direct sunlight, or am I just wishful thinking? I've also been seeing that direct sunlight so early is not good for them (?) or something like that. I am so very confused. :'(
Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would really like to have some fresh catnip for my babies and the homegrown cilantro and brussels sprouts were kind of a future present for my boyfriend, so I really want these to work out. :3
Thanks in advance~!
(I also apologize if this was covered in another topic, but I just wasn't sure what I should be searching for)
