Seed Starting Fatigue

I’ve started a lot of seeds this year. This was the first weekend that I just didn’t feel like it. Maybe I could blame my lack of motivation on daylight savings, but that wouldn’t be true. My seed starting trays are crowded. The seedlings at the edge of the trays are having to stretch to the reach the artificial light. I want to get stuff moved out into the garden, but the brassicas are just too small still.

But if I don’t plant more seeds, I won’t have zinnias this summer, and that would be a bit of a bummer.

So, more pots it is:

I’ve run out of plant tags, so I had to get creative with labels

These are all zinnia seeds I’ve collected myself. I grew some of these same seeds last year and I thought it worked great.

I still have herbs (basil, cilantro, dill, etc) to start, some more flowers (marigolds, strawflower, nasturtium) and a few leafy greens (bok choy, sorrel) to direct sow. Just gotta keep on planting…you’ll be glad you did come July.
