Mission Germination: Success

Leave a comment

Since I have been off of work for a few days with shingles, I have had plenty of time to obsess over my plants. I could write a whole new post on the shingles experience. I will just say that I have it on my face. It hurts. I’m on LOTS of medication. I’m taking handfuls of drugs per day. It is not pleasant in any way.

As I mentioned in past posts, I am making my first attempt at growing my own veggies. I am growing them from seeds. So, the first hurdle to get over is getting the seeds to germinate. Here’s where I am.

My peas after their transplant outside.

Peas: 11 of 12 seeds planted have germinated. In fact the plants are so large, I had to transplant them out side. They were out growing their little peat pots. The peas are looking good since their transplant.

Tomatoes: 6 of 16 seeds planted have germinated. Unfortunately, my cats ate two of my seedlings. I’m crossing my fingers that more of the seeds germinate.

Peppers: 4 of 16 seeds planted have germinated. I’m not totally certain what I am seeing are peppers and not onions. So, for now these I’m calling these seedlings peppers.

Green Beans: 1 of 12 seeds planted have germinated. I can see disturbance in a few other been pots. I’m pretty sure more will come up shortly.

Unidentified: I have two seedlings that I can’t identify. More on those in future posts.

So, I haven’t seen any onions, cilantro, basil, lettuce, spinach or carrots yet. I’m just excited that I have a few plants. I really have no idea what I’m doing.

This is my green bean seedling. It's growing so fast.

These are either bell peppers or onions. I dunno yet.
