Seedlings, day 6

These babies are going to be ready before the weather is if this keeps up!

The onions are perking up quite nicely. I planted most of the rest of them in the far tray today, here you can see the ones I planted on the 18th with the cabbage just behind it –

Better view of the cabbage (right) and the lettuce (left)…the green peppers in between haven’t sprouted up yet –

Can you see the teeny bit of green in the upper left of this pot? That’s my first celery ever!

    They’re sprouting like crazy! Same here. I’ve got beets, peas, lettuce, spinach and sunflowers in a too fast hurry. Now I’m worried where to put them if nighttime temps don’t increase.

  2. You babies look nice! I just love watching mine coming up! I started some Lantana today and their supposed to take 40-60 days to germinate! What a challenge! We’ll see what happens 🙂

  3. Oh, I didn’t realize you were from Salem- have you been getting sun?

    The past few days have been so nice, up to 65 yesterday, but the rain came today. I’m considering a cold frame type set up if they’re ready before the weather is!

    New to your blog, but also a gardener in Willamette valley. Live near Newberg… Anyway, I was wondering when you are planning on putting your seedlings out? The next dry day? I’ve always direct sown my seeds (call me lazy) except peppers and sometimes tomatoes. So, I’m wondering how it goes for you… Looking forward to watching your progress!

      Here’s a fantastic planting calendar – http://bioarray.us/Skippy%27s%20planting%20calendar.html I’ll probably start transplanting and direct sowing at the end of March, we’re waiting for the soil to dry enough to til right now! …I’m way to impatient to wait and direct sow everything!
