Started first seeds indoors

>> Sunday, January 25, 2009

I just couldn’t wait, so I started some radishes. These are not going to go outside, though.

These radishes are part of my recent order from John Scheepers, Purple Plum and Helios Yellow.

I started 15-18 each in a rotisserie chicken container from Costco. The coffee cup was used to sprinkle water on the soil, I closed the small opening in the lid so just a little water would come out. I always have a problem with pouring water on the seedlings and washing everything into one corner, so this worked out great.

The Purple Plum radish will be ready in 25-30 days, while the Helios Yellow won’t be ready fro 30-35 days.

I’m so excited. Woo Hoo!

I don't like radishes, but I know what you mean. We still have snow on the ground and I can't wait for spring. I just spent the last two hours looking at flowering trees and fruit trees on the internet. I'm tired of looking at my garden covered in black plastic. -Lee
