So, after my overzealous attempt to play Johnny Apple Seed last year, I never even transplanted any of the seedlings outside. To start with, they never sprouted as well in the open top bags as they had the year before in the ziplocs. Then, I was busy playing in the greenhouse in the spring, and neglected my indoor seedlings. Before I knew it, it was June, and they were all dried out and dead.
This year, I went back to ziplocs, but since I'm expecting to be busy in the greenhouse in the early days of spring, I decided to skip a step. No paper towels in the baggies, just good ole dirt. I didn't do as many bags this year either, and I used more seed per bag. If they sprout, they can be moved to the sunroom as is, and just need to be opened and watered, then straight outside to be transplanted in June.
