In general I prefer to direct-sow seeds right in their intended location. Unfortunately there are a couple spots in the garden that have failed to sprout. To eliminate pests, micro conditions and old seeds as possible factors I decided to use the start-and-transplant approach.
After rolling a set of newsprint pots and filling them with a sphagnum and potting soil mix the seeds are set and now we wait and water.
Germination dates in the chart below make it obvious not everything will be sprouting or ready to transplant at the same time.
Patience is another factor I may have overlooked. A larger pot I planted earlier in the year appears to have spinach, carrots, squash and either an apple or peach tree all coming up. It's incriminating evidence that I either forgot what was there before and/or got tired of waiting. Grow, damnit!
