Kale--just checked my calendar----planted mine(tomatoes & peppers) on the 9th of April. Going to try to find my journal from last year and see how long it took. I;m quite sure most of my seeds didn't take this long before.
I do remember it always took the pepper seeds longer to germinate than the tomatoes (about 2 weeks)--for some reason.
These are all new seeds this year too-and I also noticed fewer seeds in the packets. And at least 50 cents more per packet. Some were almost double in price.
Of course I planted ALL of the seeds-if these dont germinate I dont know if I'll buy more seeds and try again or just buy the plants later.
Dont know what is going on-I have never had trouble starting seeds before.
I also planted some lettuce & parsley that hasn't come either. I'm about ready to give up! The only thing that is coming sso far is a few cherry tomato plants- and they were quite a bit longer germinating. Thinking maybe they were too cool. Didn't keep those under my "lights" --just in the front (south) window. So --was thinking they probably cooled off too much at night.
But my other tomatoes I am keeping under the lights-------
Will give them a while longer. But need to decide in the next couple of days if I'm going to buy more and try them or just wait and buy the plants. Time is short for us up here.
