About a week ago, I wrote about starting seeds in Sphagnum peat moss - that doesn't seem like a good idea now. It's been four weeks since I planted the seeds - probably 8 flats of 18 seeds each - and no more than 5 have sprouted. About 9 days ago I planted some of the same seeds in the garden and they have sprouted, so it must be the peat moss.
As I do every year, I felt like I was getting a head start on summer gardening, and as always, I get behind - I don't feel that way this year, though. I'm happy about my new trellises and I've enjoyed working in the yard this spring. Some of my landscaping plans are coming together and my vegetable garden is coming along.
I'll definitely have to come up with a different plan for seed starting, but I really won't need to do that until next spring.
