Well I am getting geared up because it is seed starting time and this year I am planting "Heirloom" seeds. There has been so much talk about genetically modified and hybrid seeds and after full investigation I have decided to make the switch. I purchased my seeds through Burpee and some through Gurneys.
I purchased a small indoor greenhouse to get us started. It is made from PVC and has casters. I currently have this greenhouse set up in a small spare bedroom by the window. But I have also attached a special fluorescent light to assist on those cloudy/snowy days. It was very easy to assemble and has wire shelving to allow better circulation. It is about 5.5 feet high and 1.50 feet wide.
To begin with I will be starting my different varieties of tomatoes and peppers. Since this is my first time starting seeds, wish me luck!
I am also thinking about purchasing a heated mat to start some of my other vegetables like cabbage, kohlrabi and brussel sprouts. I have read that this is the recommended method.
