Today is day 37 in my attempt to germinate tobacco seeds. While most people might have given up around 28 days, I’m still going. I refuse to give up. With that said, however, I have started another batch of seeds.
Things I did with batch #1:
- Used an open container
- Spritzed twice a day
Things I’ll do with batch #2:
- Use a closed container
- Spritz twice a day
I suspect that my soil dried out too quickly for the seeds to remain moist. I also believe that they fell into the soil and consequently didn’t get adequate sunlight. I’m hoping that with this warmer weather upon us the seeds will react kindly to germination and sprout soon.
Other updates from the garden: The tiger lilies are up. The strawberries are blossoming. The hops are 35″ tall. Lastly, I’m attempting to germinate some poppy seeds the state of California gave me!
