What fine young seedlings they've become! They are growing up so fast and soon they'll want to move outside and live on their own. They've already shown they need to have some bigger space inside. I'm beginning to trust that they won't fall prey to damping off.
I hope their new homes won't be too big. I know the zucchinis are happy, they moved into their new pots a week ago and have been growing like crazy.
This one even appears to have a flower bud. Is that possible so soon? I don't remember having one with buds so early before.
The tomatoes I'm especially happy about since it's my first time starting them from seed. This guy already has roots coming out the bottom.
Tessa at Blunders with shoots, blossoms 'n roots! told me to be sure to put slits in the peat pellets so their roots can spread, and to plant them deeply so they can develop good roots. I hope this looks deep enough. There's enough room to add more soil if it looks like I need to.
The basil is getting tall too and moved up to 4" pots as well. They've got their first set of true leaves just like the tomatoes and zucchini.
Only one pumpkin was big enough to move up to his own place. The rest of the pumpkins are just starting to sprout, kind of interesting that this one grew so much quicker.
Everyone got a nice drink of 1/2 strength fertilizer, and back to the sunny window sill they went. I hope we don't need any large plastic containers in the next few weeks since they are all being used under my plants. A good excuse not to cook, we don't have anywhere to store left overs! I always like a good reason to order out.
The nicotiana sylvestris and delphiniums aren't ready to move out of the greenhouse yet. That delphinium is really taking it's time!!
And not to leave out my wintersown seeds, the Cosmos that I planted March 8th are sprouting like crazy too!
