Germinating, Lettuce, pak choy, marigold, giant sunflower

I am off for another round of vegetable growing. Some seeds were bought in February this year, and left idle for two months. Giveaway seeds from gardeners/bloggers still not tried out yet. So last Saturday, I decided to try them out.

Germination, in trays. Newspaper on top.

Some seeds emerged first, the rest still taking their own sweet time. After rounds of germination, we appreciate that some seeds are very impatient, to see the light of day, some prefer to continue sleeping and will wake up a lot later.

 I would go along with Kakdah suggestion to put them in pots. We bought 50 medium size white pots a few months back. These veggies will look nice in them. They will be placed at front car porch, to ease watering, fertilising and of course harvesting! It wont take long for these vegetables to mature...

  3. I usually get very panic if i see so many babies coming out at once, don't know where to place them later. Wah 50 medium sized pots! I bought 2 big pots few days ago and only have decided where to put them yesterday after thinking for 2 nights! Haha.

    They are quick, but I may not be quick enough to handle their demands.

    That's the way nature has in store for us, babies are cute and cuddly. Even tiger cubs are adourable.., until they decide to take off baby outfits.

  10. Bangchik, You'll be transferring these seedlings to the white pots? Just wondering, why not grow the seeds in the white pot instead?

    I'm worse than Milka. Bought 6 huge pots last week and only managed to find spots for 4 of them so far.

    There is logic in what you said. But its easier to germinate them in little pots..., and transplant in bigger white pots when they are bigger and stronger... It's becoming a habit now, so like they say, "old habits die hard".

    Good luck to your 4 big pots and those two as well..

  12. Very soon you will have a bountiful harvest! Thought of setting up an organic veggie stall? That would be great, if you have too much harvest at hand!

    I might do just that.... not pasar tani or pasar malam, home based most probably.

    Out of twenty or so marigold seeds, 5 germinated in little pots. I just put on top of damp soil.

  16. Hi i just started on my Pak Choy seedlings too. After 4 days they look like your babies too. How much water do they need and how much light too? May i know why you cover them with newspaper ?

    1. I just cover them the first week, sunlight too strong that side. The moment they stand upright, I take off the cover.

      Soil should not be dry, that's the rule. I dont plants mind sunlight much, in fact they love for photosynthesis!
