I couldn't wait any longer, so I rigged up the indoor, grow lights and had the kids "help" me put a few seeds in a pre-fab starter kit.
Of course, I over-bought seeds. At only $1 a packet, it's hard to figure out how much is enough, and more is better, right?
This is only my second year germinating indoors, so after a "good enough" success rate with the herbs and lavender last year, I added a few, new seeds to the kit.
- Snap Peas
- Cucumbers (pickles!!)
- Pacific Pear Onions
I learned a lot about basil last year and I'll be keeping it indoors throughout the summer.
Almost everything germinates in 7-14 days, so it will be interesting to see what pops up.
Also, since I have so many seeds left to plant, I'll probably buy another starter kit and do it all again next week.
