So I also have some pictures of my tomato and pepper seedlings, now these are a week and a half old (the pics).  Right now my tomato seedlings are trying to take over I think:

They, have been “reaching out” to my light that I have over them; and can almost touch it now.  Silver thinks they’ll be over a ft tall when we do finally plant them.  My thought it they’ll have a good start so why not?

Now what I’m really happy about is these:

Now I know in this picture they are not much to look at but, the fact I got some pepper seeds to sprout finally made me happy.  They are about a month behind on growth compared to the tomatoes.  However I think they’ll pick that up in no time.  It took them a month to sprout, now they are starting to reach for the light too.

It looks like we might be out of winter’s grip finally, which is good as I really need to get my peas planted this week.  I have an interesting idea for a trellis for them.  I will have to see if I can get it to work though.  I also have to get my lettuce and my onions planted very soon, so I don’t miss out on time for them to grow right.

Speaking of growing.  Strawberry is growing well, she’s already proven she can climb the gates to her pen.  I had to come up with a creative way to block those off from her.  Now it’s going to be a race to see if we can get a better pen built before she climbs the fence.  We’re also still looking for a male for her, I’m hoping to find a nice one that we can keep long term.

That’s it for now, got lots of work to do now that the snow’s are melting away.  Enjoy your weather!

Be Well, Be Safe, and Blessed Be…

  2. Peppers are just fine when you set them out a bit smaller. In fact most plants do better when they are not really big when you put them into the ground. The smaller ones seem to adapt to the environmental change a bit better. They all look wonderful. Happy gardening!! And yes, peppers are hard to start, but so worth the effort.
