As you can see in the photo above the Cosmos bipinnatus seedlings are doing well. They now have their first true leaves. On the other hand the seedlings from the Angelonia are just emerging and are so teeny-tiny that trying to photograph them was impossible. While I was distracted with family stuff they did suffer a minor dry spell when I forgot fill the reservoir tank so that the wicking mat could keep them moist. Hopefully they will recover from this slight neglect soon.
I planted 4 types of peppers from the seed Darla at Family and Flowers sent me this past December during our seed swap. Strangely though the only emerging seedlings so far are from the Yellow Bell Peppers. I’m going to wait a bit longer and if the others don’t emerge I’ll just plant more seed. So far it has been fairly painless but I still prefer direct sowing.
