I had a little help from Drake while I was sowing seeds. I had to work up and away from him because he thought the seeds were already food and he wanted to eat them!
I placed about two seeds per peat pot. I'm hoping that at least one of these seed will pop up! If I've got two broccoli growing in one pot, I'll thin out the weaker seedling.
After the pods were filled, I placed the plastic lid over them and sat them next to the sown onions in the only south-facing window we have in the house. I'm not planning on doing a lot more sowing other than these three vegetables, so hopefully the space I have will be sufficient. Because I have had such terrible luck with corn, I might start them inside as well. The earlier I plant them, the more moisture they'll receive in the season, so that may help. But I will decide that later on.I'm pretty excited about my peat pods. I can't wait for them to sprout!
*The actual sow date of my broccoli and eggplant was February 6th (this is a late post!). I live in the Northern part of Central North Carolina. If you live near me, we can compare notes and see when the best sowing/planting/harvesting dates are!
