The Seedlings

Here you go. This is what the seedlings look like now. I have to say, they are a lot larger than I have ever had them be at this point and I have always started them at the beginning of January, but usually I start them in the greenhouse where it is cooler and they are in the house this time so that may be why they have gotten so big so fast.  It could also be the potting mix I used this time which had fertilizer in it and some kind of moisture beads(I don't know what they are called and the bag is out in the greenhouse).  In this picture are tomatoes and there are a few kale in there as well.

Here is basil, marjoram which you can't really see there in the middle and marigold seedlings (Geez, they look dry don't they? Time to water!). I didn't get a picture of the two pepper seedling but they are just now getting their second leaves.


  1. Wow, I see what you mean - they ARE big already. I haven't even sowed my tomato seeds yet, because I know they will not get enough light and will go leggy. If I wait until the days are a bit longer they will hopefully do better.

  2. Wow! You are really getting a jump on the garden.

  3. Well, it is supposed to be 72 degrees today. Come on spring! lol. I will likely repot the tomato plants if I can find some deep little pots and they will be able to wait a bit longer before needing to go outside. It won't be long though, I can always tell when we are going to have an early spring.
