Sunrise is about the same here. I figured I might have started a little soon, but it's okay. I can up-pot and dote on them indoors a little longer. Few things are as nice as taking a break from work and just staring at the plants. My friends are already tired of photos of seedlings on my Instagram account. But I can't imagine working full time and planting as much as you do, RainbowGardener. You're like a super-gardener.
Here's some photos from today. I promise I won't just be uploading daily progress after a certain point. My orange peppers weren't coming up and I sifted through the soil a bit and didn't see anything, so I put in the rest of my seeds. I think they might have washed out when I watered them after seeding originally, or maybe it's just because the seeds are from last year. Oh well, we'll see how it goes. Leeks are up!
Haha, and who said I was a quitter, Gix? I just don't want to be everyone's source of free tomato plants this year like I was last year. I had to reach through my mom's church community to get rid of them all, and somehow I ended up without any yellow cherry tomatoes in the process. This year, I'm only growing enough for my mom, my grandmother, my boyfriend's mom, and me. My mom's friends can buy starters like everyone else. ;p
Just a reminder that this is what I was grappling with my very first year of growing tomatoes. I'm surprised my boyfriend didn't leave me, I was spending all of my time rotating plants, repotting, transporting, watering, fertilizing. I had no time for work. D:
Those photos barely convey how many tomato plants I had on my hands. I had them in several different places, as you can see.
Not that I didn't also kind of love it. ;p
