Stewart Not Your Monkey

Plants Started!

I'm starting about a month later than I meant to, but at least I started some seeds today. I'll be posting mainly to keep my notes in a place where I know I won't lose them, all the better to track progress/tweak next year. However, if anyone wants to share their own farming/gardening goals, tips, or work here, please feel free!

I have not bought any new seeds yet. I'm trying to use up my old seeds before I spend more money. These are all at least a year or two old. Some actually have dates back to 2005. So I'm expecting that some won't germinate at all. We'll see. I've started them in damp paper towels, which I then put into sandwich baggies & have labeled. Whatever germinates will go into flats or the cold frame.

I'm in SE Missouri, which seems to be right on the border for hardiness zones. I'm either in 6a, 6b, or plain old 6-7, depending on which map I check.
