The seed starting is coming along. Have some seedlings up to about an inch or so. Some have sprouted and just wee things right now. Some seeds have not sprouted yet. I had re seeded a couple weeks ago. Had a problem with heat source as I did not want to spend a lot on electrical cost for the back room I generally do not keep constant heat in. I generally in past years just turned the heater on when I was occupying the space.
If I start seeds next year for spring planting I may need to start them in December. May need to build a small box about three feet square and put a heat lamp in it. Plus maybe a grow light. I would like my seedlings up to about six or eight inches for spring transplanting to the outside.
I could buy my plants at the garden centers for what few I need but they may not have the plants I want. I will look this spring when their shipment of plants arrive. They are not in the stores yet on many plants. Only seen some flowers and spring vegetable plant like some cabbages, cauliflower and the like.
For the amount of transplants I want would probably cost around $30.00 tops. How much can about ten or twelve plants cost. Sometimes I wonder if it is worth the bother dealing with seeding and tending almost daily for about ten weeks for a few plants.
