The seed goddess hath forgiven me

Post  acara on 9/23/2010, 12:30 pm

whether it was the "mojo-chicken-bone dance", the WFET's hearing my pathetic-sobbing appology to my mistreated radish seeds & taking pity on me or the raddishes putting in a good word for me ( ...he's just dumb ...but he really does mean well..LOL) ... the sacred seed goddes has seen fit to forgive my raddish-transplant-fiasco, and bless me with with a new sprout !!!!

One of the wild Florida Everglades tomatoes poped today !!!!!!!!!!!

Radish update ..... Starting to look like I've almost fully recovered. I finished my hardening-off cycle & will but the box out in the garden full-time this week & see how they do.

@Acara wrote:I packed them gently in some MM that I left in the sun today to dry out, so that it was fine/loose/powdey and compacted/rewet it with an eyedropper on each planting, to pack it and eliminate air pockets between the peatballs and the dirt.

The eyedropper is a bonsai trick for getting small amounts of soil/media where you want it, without traumatizing/damaging roots (or washing out the growing media with the water pressure).

After washing the seeds out of my peat pellets/pods today when I watered from the top instead of the bottom Embarassed I remembered you talking about using an eyedropper on your seedlings. I pulled out my eyedropper and dang, that works so well, it really does not disturb the seeds or soil at all.

Thanks for a great idea.

I love planting radishes if only because they're nearly instant gratification for those of us antsy to grow stuff! Helps me be a little more patient with the slower stuff if the radishes jump out of the ground.

Ummmm ......

Gotz 4 full trays of radishes going ATM.....

Got a little bored around Jan 31 & figured WTH.

I'll grab "harvest" pics over the weekend ....

Honestly, was just killing time over our "winter" (laughable term in zone 9).

I'm going full-bore Russian Heirloom tomatoes this time around, but may do a token "stanley" cucumber plant....just for giggles.

Dropping 8 Black Prince seedlings in the SFG's this weekend, 8 Cherokee Chocolates next weekend & 8 Black Krims on the weekend after that. Planning Zogola and Amana Oranges after the Blacks finish Very Happy

my 2 cents worth for watering peat pellets or just about anything with seeds and seedlings. -----the 1 or 2 gallon garden sprayer. I like Ortho. Adjust nozzle to mist or spray---or if you're mad----JET. get that pesky wabbi

Acara, can you drop Choksaw a note? He's in NPR and struggled last year...I told him you weren't far away and could advise on shade and heat, but I haven't seen him pop up lately.
