That was April 29.
Today is May 7 and there are sprouts in every cell. The alyssum was up in 2 days, then the zins. The last to sprout were the 2-year-old mixed coleus seeds that popped up this morning.
Since this Spring continues to be mild, I decided to close down the basement, set up the 2nd tabletop hoopster and move all the seedlings outside.
Since I don't want them to sunburn, I set up a panel of curtain sheers to give them some protections.
Voila! The heat tray only went for 9 days this year. And boy, did it do the trick.
So there we go. Only 7 'Propagation' posts this season and it's already at FINALE.
I like this. Simple is better.
I didn't miss doing Winter Sowing at all this year. It was fun for a few years, but now - I'll stick to inside stuff.
