We're off to a great start

It's been awhile since I last updated you on how my seedlings were doing. In fact! Some of them were transplanted outdoors this week! Come with me as I take you on a tour of my garden-to-be.

Back row: Fish pepper, marigolds (should be germinated by now)
Front row: Rosa Bianca eggplant
Containers with no growth were planted this weekend and contain various herbs: lavendar, summer savory, dill, chamomile, rosemary, mint, and lemon balm

Back row: Basil, Carnival Mix Peppers, Chives (not germinated, planted 2 days ago)
Front Row: Basil, Cumin, Cilantro (not germinated, planted 2 days ago), two sets of spinach
Back row: Lettuce (Red Sails, Four Seasons, Romaine), leeks (poor germination rate), broccoli (romanesco), tomatillo (green mexican)
Front Row: Cabbage (Red Delight, Early Jersey Wakefield) Cauliflower, Ventura Celery, two of Green Goliath broccoli

Three Artichoke
Heinz and Roma Tomatoes recently transplanted
Borage, Cherokee Purple Tomatoes
Looks like I didn't get any pictures of my Zinna, but they are doing very well and have been recently transplanted into the plastic cups as well.


  1. They look good though I think I would not put them so deep in the cups so they could get more light.

  2. I was being cheap because I was using a seed starting mix ($$). Do transplants have to be planted in such a mix or could I have used garden soil?
