Honestly I don't know how many plants I have considering I'm planting an area almost 1/2 acre.

Tomatoes
peppers
onions
flowers

for now, then many others when it warms up a bit.

I've got over 1000 seedlings going. Too many types to list on my phone.

Ok so my plants are getting big what's the next step? If I put them in 3in pots I. Won't have grow light space for them. I've taken them outside and harden them off now I can put the cold crops in the ground and give some away? There pretty small I have a spot I'm going to cover with plastic so they don't get smashed. I also have a old old yellow paneled green house I could put my cold crops in. But I need room for the warm crops.
Do I just take them out in the day and bring them in at night? I have this for cover also

I'm sorta in the same boat... i had to stop germinating seeds.. because i don't have enough room and enough light to keep going - so i have to do the others as i move the current ones outdoors.. but i have awhile because the weather is not cooperating here in rhode island just yet.

i have my seedlings in 22oz tumblers that i bought at joblot and drilled 3 holes in them at the bottom - they'll be good in there for a couple of weeks - just enough time to put outdoors. here are a couple of pics..

Wow... right now, i've got 8 seedlings going. I'll probably end up starting anywhere from 10 to 12 more, so a total of 20 or so for the year? I wish i had as much room as everyone else!

Your not alone. One have about 600 sf
I have 50 pepper plants started and will be start 50 more plants soon.
I use intensive gardening techniques, where many folks think they are too crowded. But it turns out well.

Good luck

Thanks- you too! I'm not going to go too crowded, but i AM going to make sure that i use up all the space I have; last year I didn't do that and i regret it.. so this year I'm just going for it!
