Tiny Seedlings

January 29th, 2018

Last weekend, I started a few flats of seeds. One of spicy micro greens, one of cilantro, one of a mix of lettuce, and one of arugula. They all germinated quickly and are growing nicely. The light stand is located in my office, which is COLD. In fact so cold one morning that my computer wouldn’t come on.

I had plans to be growing greens and cilantro under the grow lights all winter, I just never really got around to it. Perhaps next winter I’ll do a bit better and actually be harvesting a few salads a week from the indoor garden.

Perhaps if I kept it a bit warmer these little guys would grow a bit faster, but I’m not really in any rush.

Are you growing anything edible indoors?

    Susy, yes, I too wanted to grow micro greens this Winter but December was a busy Christmas month and for some reason January has just flown by. So now it’s time to start thinking about Spring planting and seed starting. Maybe I’ll start growing some micro greens after all the seed starting is over. Nah, probably not. I keep having intentions to play with seeds and see how viable they are but haven’t accomplished that yet. Maybe this will be the week I get inspired to start working toward the seed starting season. Or maybe there’s tomorrow. Yes, I am the great procrastinator.

    Have a great day starting seeds.

This is a daily journal of my efforts to cultivate a more simple life, through local eating, gardening and so many other things. We used to live in a small suburban neighborhood Ohio but moved to 153 acres in Liberty, Maine in 2012.
