It’s been 6 weeks since my kids and I planted our seeds. We’ve faithfully watered them everyday and have seen our rows of dirt turn into buds of lime green.
There have been a few casualties. On a particularly hot day, I didn’t water enough and the green beans wilted in our little greenhouse. I hoped they would return but they didn’t. Unfortunately, those were the only two (of 12) green been seeds that sprouted.
Our cucumbers and tomatoes are about six inches tall but the peppers haven’t sprouted yet. They usually take 4-6 weeks to sprout so now that they haven’t, I’m wondering if they have gotten enough warmth. I’m going to put a plastic bag around the egg cartons to keep them a little warmer and hope that forces the sprouting.
I thought I may have planted the seeds a little late this year but it’s about 40 degrees here today and snowing 10 miles from here. Since we are not past the first frost yet, I think we’re going to be right on track.
