Seed starting time

I started the bulk of my seeds last week already. This is a tray of 72 peat pots for Celeriac, Cockscomb, Oregano, Marmande Tomato, Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, and Jersey Giant Tomato in which almost everything has sprouted already.

These are the celery plants I started back at the end of January to help my parents out with their new garden. The tallest is only about 5 inches. They weren’t kidding about them being slow growers!

And finally, these are some houseplants I have started. The porthos and african violets are cuttings I got from classmates during my master gardener class on propagation. The one on the right is a toothache plant (Acmella oleracea) started from seed. As soon as I heard it was a medicinal plant that could help numb a toothache and relieve muscle tension, I knew I had to try growing some. It turns out it’s also an edible green that can be used raw or cooked as well.
