Like the title says. This is my first year. I started the seeds and the packages were saying that it takes about a week for germination. Well, it's been a week and the plants started sprouting within 2 days. I used those Jiffy seed starters and have a dozen Acorn squash, artichoke, butternut squash, cucumbers, jalapeno peppers, serrano peppers, 3 types of tomatoes, snow pea, pole pea and cabbage. Everything is taking off except for the pepper plants. Only have 3 jalapenos starting to sprout. Still have planty of snow on the ground with freezing temps at night. I never would've thought every single seed would sprout for these plants. I just have a condo with a moderate sized backyard. I may be giving away some of these plants. I've never done this before and have been suprised. My countertops, dinning table and window ledges are full right now and getting some 5 gallon buckets. Going to be quite the forest. Oh well, hope they do well til I can take them outside or we get some warm weather quick. Think I bit off more than I can chew, literally and figuratively.
