FINALLY got my summer seed order today... trying to get an early start on my container garden this year! i have the moonflower seeds soaking overnight (they should have been in weeks ago... they take FOREVER to bloom where i live)... tomorrow they'll be the first to be planted!
other than my moonflowers, i'm putting cucumbers, eggplant, tomatoes, radishes, peas (yes peas! they made a container-variety pea! THRILLED!) and mesclun mix, as well as assorted herbs, in containers, and i'm going to clandestinely plant some zukes in my mom's front garden because there's no way on earth they can be tamed to containers. most of these will be purchased as plants from my local garden center but i figured i'd mess with seeds on a few weird varieties that i didn't feel like searching for... anybody know how early you can plant zucchini and cucumber indoors? i'm in zone 7 (borderline 6). i'm debating whether or not to germinate my basil inside as well... basil tends to get all drunken and wimpy if it gets too big in the transplant pots.
anyway... i was just excited, i had to share i've been waiting for these seeds for 2+ weeks now, i guess there's some added inspection/regulation/bureaucracy regarding seed transport across state borders?
anybody else starting garden seeds for this season?
