Well got my germination station rocking and rolling now!! So far I've started marigolds, zinnias, lobelia, tons of varieties of tomatoes, broccoli, califlower, and some herbs. I use a heating pad on "medium" and that puts the temp about 85 degrees. The most intense things I have to germinate are of course my giant pumpkins. One seed I am starting this year is the 1161 Rodonis. A SINGLE 1161 RODONIS HAS AUCTIONED THIS WINTER FOR OVER $500. I received it free but it still puts the pressure on my ability to germinate the thing. I will do practice germinations before starting my pumpkins towards the end of April.
In other news, Blaine has been loving playing outside in this incredible weather we've been having (60's and 70's). Cold is on its way though with snow forecasted for later this week. :(
