Peppers have sprouted! Three little Anaheims greeted me this morning, pushing their tiny cotyledons against the damp plastic lid of the starter tray as if to say, “Let us out!” So I did.
The lone surviving Pasilla Bajio from the first planting is starting to peek out a bit, and might stand up by tomorrow. Four replacement onions are also starting to sprout, little green-white loops not yet strong enough to lift the seed casing.
Three more onions collapsed past the point of recovery when the tray dried out too much over the weekend–hazards of starting things at work. I pulled them and re-started them, but those will likely be the last that I re-start. I’ve got a lot of other things to start and supplies to shop for and new beds to build!
