So this is what my seed starts and transplants currently look like. The transplants were so small that I was able to actually scoop them out with a spoon, roots and all, and I think that all of them are going to make it just fine. I haven’t noticed any signs of distress, with the exception of the one I didn’t get planted deeply enough and even that one might be okay. I also have the half dozen eggshell planters and I am trying the winter sowing technique I saw on Pinterest in the milk jug outside with some hollyhock seeds. Two separate pins linked to the same technique basically. One from A Garden For the House, (I checked out some other stuff on this site and it was really good information) and another from another site called The Herb Companion (which I haven’t yet had time to check out more thoroughly with the exception of her piece on winter sowing, but I do plan to.)
I think that those are all the starts I am going to try this year. In the past I have had trouble with starting seeds indoors and have found that my seeds do better when I let God take care of them (outside) instead of relying on myself to remember to water, and get them sunlight. I am hopeful though that this year, I will get better results than I have in previous years. I have definitely done more research (about dampening off specifically).
