The seeds I started are sprouting. I have Merritt Collards in the back, Homestead tomatoes in the second row and TX wild tomatoes in the front.
They were very slow to start this year so I put a heating pad on low under the pie plate I'm using. Two days later I had sprouts!
I really like the Jiffy pellets to start them in, it makes it easy and nearly foolproof. Just soak the pellets until they swell up, then stick 2 or 3 seeds in the hole and cover with a bit of the soil. I set mine in a glass pie plate and tape paper notes as to which ones are what, then I use my desk lamp with the bendable neck to get the light down close. I put a bit of water in the plate as it goes dry.
Once the sprouts are up I plant the whole thing in a 2" pot. Those pots go in a plastic bin so I can water from the bottom and easily carry them outside during the day.
