Given that we just got dumped on by a ton of snow, there are probably several of us who would love to see some green. This is partly why I am so anxious to start our plants in January! We planted a few different plants a couple of weeks ago and I showed the seed planting then. While a few are starting to pop up the broccoli and Brussels Sprouts are going like gangbusters!
I couldn’t believe how well they are doing. It’s great because we’ll have very healthy plants to put in the ground come April when the ground is workable. As we did have a major storm and I realised my bigger pots are in the carriage house I had to make do with smaller 6 packs for now. I carefully spooned out each seedling and put them each into their own cell. Watering as I went so they don’t go into shock.
They will lay down and act like they’ve given up sometimes but they perk up. I put the clear cover over them and back onto the heating pads and under the grow lights. So now every one-two weeks we’ll be transplanting and staging the seedlings until it’s time to put them out in the real world….
