The Weekend

Speckles Lettuce

Will separate some into different pots.
Broccoli starting to look like broccoli.
Kale and the Swiss chard not acting nice. More needs to be sowed. The peat pot get gunky so hopefully many of the vegetables will be transplanted into plastic pots tonight.
Spinach with mold on the soil. I'll water it less and turn the fn on the seedlings.
Tomatoes growing and still doing well.

What happened to the radishes? A tangled mess and mass of root that have outgrown the container. I seperated them into 3 clumps till I decide what to do with them.
Orange black eyed Susan vine. This is why you don't start seeds early. Before the last frost, it'll be twined all over everything. It doesn't matter though because if broken the roots are still alive and it'll take off again. Usually I sit them out and we have an unexpected cool night that appears to kill them but only the top. When it warms up it starts growing again.
Petunia all of three seedlings. Peat pots weren't good to me for these as every day they were dried out germinated but died due to lack of water. I may sit sow some and place in the window as the seed shelf has gotten full and my violas moved to the window seal.
White swan echinacea. Four of 12 seeds germinated and I'm happy for 4 seedlings because I just found them in my refrigerator with a date on the package of 2012.
Sweet pea seedlings from 4 year old seeds. I've only tried them once but didn't take care of them once planted in the ground. Lets see if I can pay better attention to them this year.
Apple blossom geraniums seedlings. Maybe they'll be transplanted next weekend when the other three seedlings have at leaf a true leaf.
White black eyed Susan vine from old seed. Only 1 hasn't germinated yet.

My pumpkin finally got soft. Picked it up by the stem as I've been doing all winter and the stem came off. Maybe the squirrels will find this a welcome treat in the yard.

They dug up the hyacinth bulb and left it sitting there uneaten. It must not be tasty.
Eventually I'll get to them and give them a hair cut, cut off half the roots, and put in fresh soil. Then pray that they reappear.
It's supposed to go up to 60 degrees today. Temperature on the porch now.
I replanted some of the vegetables and put them back on the shelf. This was their first day out of the house for a few hours although only 1 hour is recommended on the first day. It's early to be hardening them off but when they get a little bigger I'm planting the cool season ones in the yard with a frost cloth. 
The sad looking Swiss chard wasn't done but I'll get to it tomorrow.

They've grown since I transplanted them last week. None have died.

My 2 pansies.
Dragon wing begonias, sadly.
