Portland Seed Starting 2021: Round 2

I’m in Portland for a few days, so I’m taking this opportunity to start as many seedlings as I can. I brought home my entire seed collection:

I know some of these should have started indoors sooner (ahem, tomatoes). And some of these could probably wait a bit to be started, but I don’t want to wait until July, so it’s now or never.

I have zucchini, butternut squash, cucumber, beans, peas, several kinds of herbs (including basil, and chervil and parsley – again), tomatoes, and some flowers. I also want to pick up some lettuce seeds to start while I’m here.

I made more newspaper pots to plant the seeds. The larger square pots seemed to work well for the last round of seeds we started in Portland. The only change I made this time was to use a mixture of seed starting mix and potting soil (roughly 2:1).

Here they are all potted up!

(There are some mint cuttings and a geranium cutting in the bottom lefthand corner.)

I’ll keep the seeds in the kitchen where I can keep an eye on them until they germinate and then I’ll move them downstairs under the grow lights.
