first sprouts

Post  kshimpi on 8/26/2010, 7:52 pm

Here is a pic of my first sprouts...swiss chard! I have been a little bummed that something is messing in my seeds...the sugar snap peas were still in the garden, just not poked down in the holes like I left them. Maybe I need to cover the ones that little creatures are trying to get to?

Yeah ! good for you ! happy dance ! it looks so pretty !
I don't know how the weather is where you are but when we were at the community garden I used to cover my seeds with row cover just until they sprouted so nothing would mess with them and the nice thing is you can water right through it too.

Peas will push themselves up when they sprout, and since they aren't very far down in the dirt, they'll often pop right up and if you turn them over, you'll find little sprouts Smile I just put a little bit of dirt over them.

Kristan I got mine from Johnny's seeds , they seemed to have a good price for the quantity I wanted. I think most of the mail order seed places sell it, it is very light , and you can almost see through it. I think there are different kinds , according to what to do with it.
