I'm looking for my manual for graceful living.
I think I set it down somewhere over here...
It won't be long now!
Hi Susan, HA, it is so exciting to have them under the domes. If only we could see inside we wouldn't have to check on them hourly!Frances
Isn't it wonderful when that first faint green fuzz pokes through the soil? Quite miraculous, even for those (like me) of a mostly secular mindset.
I looked closely and there was definitely 1 sprout, over in the....;)
Your photos show how well the domes are working! I always want to check the rice before it's ready too! UYou'll show us when you peak won't you?gail
Wow, you're fast! Seed starting is one of my favorite aspects of vegetable gardening. Each emerging seed is a thrill.
I'm going to go right now and look through my archives to see when I started my seeds last year. I'm so ready to get started, I'm thinking it is still too early.
Anticipation is definitely the word for this process! ;) How nice to have a southfacing window that you put your seed starting trays in.
I'm resisting the urge to join you after seeing your post! Sadly I have to wait until next month before sowing a thing :(
Have you ever read the classic children's books about "Frog and Toad"? There's one story where Toad has planted some seeds and he is so impatient to see them come up - he spends all his time out in his garden, singing to them, yelling at them, etc and finally falls asleep from exhaustion and despair. Then he wakes up and they have sprouted! It's like the watched pot not boiling, huh? Turn around for a bit and they'll sneak up out of the soil. :)
lol - I know that urge.Like VP I have to wait until next month before sowing the seeds.(But I do get my seed packets out, look at them and say Hello)K
I have to wait till next month too - peppers are usually first to go in the propagator.Like Karen I'm making do with looking at my seed packets (lol)
It's too early to plant seeds here, but I am excited to see yours grow!
Y'all are making me nervous! The seed packets all said start indoors six to eight weeks before planting date, so I'm guessing that would be right about now for here...
I can't wait! You have to show us more pictures of their first peek out of the soil.
I'm so behind. I haven't planted a seed yet - yikes! Soon, I'll do it soon - and I understand that anticipation...a colleague has tomato seeds germinating in his window. Today he told me that I came by to see only his tomatoes, and not to talk to him. He had a point...
