Gardener’s Journal – 2/26/11

Today I did some more sowing of seeds – both in the cold frame and in some newspaper pots to put under shop lights in the basement.  I sowed marigolds (I’m trying a 60 day variety to see if they will actually flower in time to help out my early veggies), parsley and beets in newspaper pots.  I decided not to heat the seeds in the basement to see if it makes a difference – I normally use Christmas lights under the trays – I’m too cheap to spend the $40 on a heating mat (so far). 

In the cold frame I sowed some lettuce, leeks and parsley.  The soil temperature has reached 50F, so hopefully some of the seeds I sowed earlier will start germinating now too.  (Still only the arugula showing any signs of life.)
