oh boy, I went to wal mart today and went through the garden center and found some goodies. I'm really starting to get anxious for spring.
ok, so anyways, I'm starting this here thread to show you what I got and ask a few questions about it.
first off, I got these things by the brand name Jiffy, their called greenhouses, but really they're just flats with a lid and seed starting peat pellets. I got one specifically for tomatos and one that just seems general purpose. the tomato one plants 36 and the general one does 72. I saw these and I think they'll be just perfect for starting seeds in my situation!! pretty excited about em! I've got a question though. it says to put 2-3 seeds in each thing of peat and once the first true leaves appear, trim back the two weaker ones. would you recommend I do this, or not??? seems like a waste of seed to me, am I wrong?
then I got some seeds , I don't know about the rest of ya but I just love pickin out seeds, I just get all giddy and excited for the growing season! anyways, I got the following: jalapeno pepper, pot of gold pepper (yellow bell), sonoma sunset hybrid pepper (red bell), big dipper pepper (green bell), kaleidoscope mix peppers, eggplang black beauty, beefsteak tomato, yellow pear tomato, red lightning hybrid tomato!!!
so tell me what ya'll think of this seed starting setup and my seeds!!!!
here's a pic of what I'm talking about.....
