Seed Starting!

I’ve been wintersowing since February but this past weekend I started my tomatoes and peppers as well as some herbs and shasta daisies in plug trays.

I started 9 of Burpee’s hot pepper mix, 9 roma tomatoes, 12 super sweet 100 tomatoes, 6 shasta daisys, 2 sage, 2 dill, 2 oregano, 2 Thyme and 2 cilantro.  I’ve only filled about half my seed tray but I’ve got more herbs and some flowers to start a little later.


So far I’ve planted:

  • Petunias
  • Pansies
  • Lupine
  • Shasta Daisy
  • Black Eyed Susan
  • Parsly
  • Cilantro
  • Sage
  • Oregano
  • Dill
  • Thyme
  • Tomatoes (roma and super sweet)
  • Mixed hot peppers

And all I have left to plant

  • summer squash
  • zuccinni
  • sugar snap peas
  • sweet peas
  • Chives
  • zinnias (lots and lots and lots of big pink ones!)
  • sunflower
  • nasturtiums
  • Marigolds

I’m planning on planting the flowers in milk jugs in the winter-sowing style in Early April.  I’m also going to see if the ground is “workable” and see about planting my sweet peas and sugar snap peas as well as all the gladiolus.  That will probably be a project for next week after daylight savings gives me some after-work sunlight!

Here’s to hoping the cat doesn’t destroy the seed tray before I get home tonight!
