Seed Starting Update 3/31/2010

It's been two and a half weeks since we started the tomato seedlings and as you can see they are coming along quite nicely. They have been moved to a window where they can get some natural sunlight. I have turned off the bottom heater since they are so big and strong. They almost 80 degree weather we have had today makes me itch to get them outside soon. It won't be long now, and it looks like we will have a bumper crop to croon about. 

 The cabbage, brussel sprouts, and cauliflower are all getting their true leaves and will be going into the ground in the next two weeks or so. I am thinking that I will start hardening them off next week. They were started on or around the 3rd of March so their 4 weeks old. I will also sow a couple seeds directly into the ground for a later harvest mid summer. I didn't take a picture of the leeks but they are performing very well. They will also be planted in the garden in the next couple of weeks and are sharing a spot on the window sill as well.
