Spring is around the corner and now is a great time to start your indoor seeds. Average last frost in Austin (Zone 8) is Feb 28-Mar 31, which makes yesterday the 6 weeks before the last frost date - perfect time for most the vegetables I'm growing.
I'm trying out a new seed starter kit this year. Although I usually enjoy mixing my own starter soil, using the the pellet tray was a great way to get my 3 year old involved. He loved pouring in the water and watching the pellets grow.
My first round of seeds include asparagus, eggplant, goji, tobacco
, bell peppers, tomatoes, amaranth, watermelon, and I'm pretty sure my son dropped some broccoli seeds somewhere.
I've never tried asparagus, but I've had these seeds for about a year now. Eggplants didn't do crap last year, so here's to trying again.
I'm addicted to gojis, I have 2 larger plants that may have been damaged by the recent freeze, and about 8 plants that are 5" tall under grow lights.
I had a great time with the tobacco last year, and I have a ton of seeds. Let me know if you want some - we'll trade. It was a good smoke
20 tomatoes planted, a mixture of Early Red Chief, Black Plum Paste, Cherokee Purple, and Arkansas Traveler. The watermelon seeds are from last years watermelons. Yes, I made everyone save the seeds.
What are you growing?
