GrafixMuse's Seed Starting 2010 - Revised

  1. I am so the same way with seeding dates. I have a spreadsheet with all the dates things should be seeded and planted outside, but really I consider all the dates suggestions. The poor plants have to work around my schedule.

  3. Whoops! I didn't think this would show up in everyone's reader. I even tried to hide it back in February's postings. I had a seed starting schedule as an excel spreadsheet that I was updating each week. I thought I would try importing the excel spreadsheet into google docs because any changes I make will automatically be updated in my blog. Then I created a link in the sidebar to the 2010 schedule so I can look at it any time.

    Daphne: I knew when I was making the schedule that I would use it as just a guideline. I am so anxious about my first year growing seeds, that I start most early just in case they fail to germinate. Hopefully, by keeping good notes, I can adjust the dates next year.

    Kiwi Gnomes: Thanks! This is my first year growing from seeds instead of purchasing transplants, so I am a little unsure about the timing. So I am experimenting with the timing and hope to use the data in the future to make changes.

  4. I've done a similar spreadsheet, and I take inventory each time I water the plants. I fuss over those that haven't even shown an inkling of germinating, but celebrate many that have 100% germination. I wasn't very good at keeping records last year, and got a lot of the varieties mixed up and mislabeled, so I'm being very diligent this year!

  5. Grafixmuse - this is my first year too ... but I must say, you seem to be way ahead of me! I am impressed ... maybe I'll have to steal your idea! I've got a general outline in my icalendar, and scratches on some paper ... but nothing so professional looking! You're doing awesome!
