Today I planted the first batch of plants. Tomatoes, Eggplant, Onions, Jalapenos, and some flowers that I had left over from last year. I am really looking forward to the next few weeks when they start to germinate - I always find it encouraging to see things coming to life after such a long, cold winter. So far I'm impressed with the coconut husk pots I ordered - they seem to drain well and it looks like the root systems will be able to grow through.
I also now have a grow light so my plants should do better (in theory) than last year. I still have to wait four weeks to plant my cucumber plants, as they only require 4 weeks inside before being transplanted. I am also going to try sowing some of my yellow squash inside and some sown directly outside when I plant in May. The package said to put them directly outside, but I have my doubts about how well they'll do that way.
