I finally started seed yesterday. Um, very late this year.
All the trays are double-stacked on top of my fridge for warmth. I gave the pepper tray some extra heat while seeding the others- sat on the plate in a pan warmed on the stove and turned off again, but it was still too warm. Melted the bottom of the plastic tray a bit. Oh well, that's one I will just recycle at end of planting season. I have plenty of newly saved trays anyhow.
I gave myself a treat yesterday and went to my favorite local greenhouse. I go there once or twice a year (spring and sometimes fall), and there are always some plants I've never seen before, which is exciting. This year I noticed tons of varieties of decorative sage, and so many salvias, they all look so different. I don't know the variety name of the salvia I have in my yard, but it's done so well I wanted to try a few more. Also there were many types of mint, and thyme, and succulents galore. It was hard to be picky... here's what I got:
Monarda 'Petite Delight'
I also bought myself a 'needlepoint' ivy, to be a houseplant.
