Seed Starting Time!

Seed starting time is finally starting to get into full swing.  Yesterday I finally got around to starting my first round of hot pepper seeds.  In about a week I will be starting the next round of pepper seeds, those will be sweet peppers.  I can only start so many flats at a time because in order to get a good germination they need to be nice and warm.  As you can see in the below picture one of my seed starting racks I have covered in plastic, the plastic keeps the heat, that the lights give off, inside with my plants.  It can be between 15 and 20 degrees warmer inside the plastic than it is in the rest of my basement.


Whenever I start seeds I try to keep the newly planted, not yet sprouted flats on the top two shelves of my this stand, these are the warmest shelves, heat rises.  Once they sprout I can then move them down to the lower shelves.  After the seedling get a little bit larger I can then move them to one of the lights outside my plastic covered shelf.  Since I only have room to start 8 flats of seeds at a time I have to plant my seeds in rounds.

So yesterday I started 3 flats of hot peppers, one flat of rhubarb, and a flat of cabbage and kohlrabi.


A flat of mixed herbs (oregano, thyme, marjoram, peppermint, and some others) and a flat of celery, both were planted around 2 weeks ago.
 

Whenever I start some seeds I keep track of all important dates, and information.  Here is my clipboard where I write down the plant, if I started it inside or outside, date started, date sprouted, date transplanted inside, date transplanted outside, date harvested, and date finished.
