I had to do it. My plants put up a valiant effort and a few of them are still hanging in there, but in the end I had to go down to Baker’s Nursery, because my plants were not making it on the outside. The plants just weren’t mature enough and I saw they weren’t going to make it and I didn’t have the time to starts seeds again. We have to have our garden planted by mid-April here in the southwest.
Starting seeds for fall planting was soooooo much easier. I didn’t have to think about it. I planted the seeds, planted the seedlings, and they grew. I had no idea spring planting would be so challenging. I am very happy for Baker’s Nursery because they have organic starts and a great variety. I was able to get back on track and now all of the starts are planted and we are looking forward to a great growing season. We have zucchini, onions, squash, cantaloupes, watermelon, peppers and eggplant. On the bright side, most of my tomato plants made it to the garden, that’s eleven tomato plants that I started from seed indoors. So I don’t feel too bad. My tomato plants are a victory and I have to work out the kinks with the other seedlings.
