I think every single fruit/vegetable seed that I planted in February sprouted! I was worried about the age of the seeds and thought a low percent would actually sprout so I overloaded my little planters with seeds then got to pick most of the seedlings out once they started growing. This year I'll have to do a bit of seed saving to build my stash back up!
The plants are doing pretty well, especially the squashes; I'll need to replant them soon to give them more room to grow. A few weeks ago I decided to remove most of the roots that were growing out of the bottom of the compostable pots and the plants didn't seem to mind one bit. Unfortunately the few other seeds I started later in the greenhouse (strawberries, creeping thyme, and marigolds) have not sprouted. I'm going to try again with the marigolds at least.
Other exciting plant/gardening news: things that are outside are growing! The garlic is growing, the rhubarb is growing, that mystery flower bulb is growing, some of the strawberry plants I moved and thought I killed are growing, and the lettuce seeds that I planted too late last year and didn't germinate because of the heat are growing! MAGIC!* Also, lots of weeds are growing (as you can see in the below pictures because I didn't bother with pulling them for these photos)!
My weekend gardening plans are to 1) rearrange the sprinklers and get a drip line to my new strawberry patch so I can 2) move my strawberries/plant some more strawberries; and 3) plant some more flowers. What are your upcoming gardening plans?
*I am super annoyed by the "Foods that Magically Regrow Themselves" infographics Whole Foods put out a few years ago that are still incredibly popular on Pinterest. It's not magic that putting seeds or parts of plants into water/soil make the plant grow, it is biology and has a simple, non-magical explanation.
