    Default Starting plants

    Well we are at the first week of March and I am thinking about starting some of my early plants. Mainly tomatoes but maybe some onions too.


    Got my shelves set up but not the lights yet. Maybe I'll start planting seeds on saturday.


    Any one else thinking about starting plants yet?

    Tomatoes are the only thing I start, and I just now finished that project and got my mess cleaned up..

    Toms & pansies as soon as I can. Now is time
    South window
    Grow light helps too, not get so leggy. But I plant toms up to their neck when they go in the GH.

    My tomatoes started poping up saturday (7 days after starting), but really came up big time on sunday. Nothin on the onions yet. Also planted celery seeds yesterday.

    Artichokes, celery, celeriac, leeks, some onions, and alpine strawberries. I took the potted artichokes I overwintered from the basement and put them under growlights indoors 2 weeks ago, and they're doing great. Will start tomatoes soon.
