seedy weekend

this weekend, i finally started my seeds.  of course, my dad has his own seeds to start with mine.  on saturday, we prepped the flats and today, i moved them into my basement grow station.

here's what's set to grow for 2010:

my plants:

  • fennel
  • japanese eggplant
  • fernleaf dill
  • tomatillo verde
  • green zebra tomato
  • tumbling tom tomato
  • roma tomato
  • sweet italian basil
  • ruby swiss chard

dad's plants:
  • red bell pepper
  • orange bell pepper
  • japanese eggplant
  • tomato
  • okra
  • zinnia

because i'm so late with starting seeds (again), i'm using hydrofarm's seedling heat mats this year.  hopefully i'll be able to plant a few seedlings next month - i'll just need to make sure i give them lots of good nutrients so that they can grow strong in the ground.

today, i took care of some yard clean-up and thankfully, i have they day off tomorrow and hope to separate my clematis and get a few "cold weather" seeds into the ground.

happy spring!
