Seed Starting and Other Witty Banter

(In honor of Valentine's day please read the following post in a seductive voice)

I've finally got around to starting up my seeds for the exciting new grow season

I know, I know, you've been waiting for this with baited breath haven't you? Sorry to keep you waiting baby, but the time just wasn't right yet.

I bet you're dying to get a gander at my process aren't you? Well let me tell you 'sweet thang', *flicks off sunglasses* you've come to the right place.

I start off with sixteen sexy seed packets that I got at the  seed exchange last year.  I've been harboring them under my bed all winter, and it's fun to finally pull them out. I've only have hot pepper seeds, but that must just be because I am so darn hot.

Now, I don't have a lot of room in my apartment for plants, so I just stuck these little babies in wet paper towels to get them started off. I then gently caressed the paper towels into plastic baggies, careful not to get them too crumpled.

I then labeled the ziplock bags with the variety of pepper, the date, the estimated days until germination if I could find it.

I did it in purple sharpie... because I'm a rebel *wink*.

Now I'd normally keep these cuties right next to my heart where they can feel the warmth of my bosom but this year I decided to give my new heat mat a try instead.

I don't currently have a working thermometer so I make do with shuffling the baggies every few hours so they all get the same amount of heat.

That's right, I put an insulartory object on top of a heating mat despite the direct instructions not to. I'm just cool like that.

  1. That's a wink!?!? I wonder what your scary face looks like... ;-) Looks like it is time to update your contact pic on my phone! (BTW, great post. I love how your personality is expressed in your writing.)
