Seedlings

So all the seeds that I’ve sown indoors this Spring have sprouted except for the Watermelons. Researching a little on the internet I found that I may not be keeping the seedlings warm enough for the watermelon’s liking. We are currently using a room above the garage that we heat minimally. I’ve been keeping the room at at least 50 degrees F in order to keep the Tomatoes and Peppers happy. But apparently the watermelon needs 70s in order to sprout. I guess I’ll wait till I can take over the heating pads from the Tomatoes and Eggplants.

Why can’t I bring the Watermelons into the main house? It has to do with a certain gray kitty. It seems Audrey has decided that the seedlings are eggs and she’s a chicken and that she needs to cover them in order to help them grow.

In the meantime we have California Wonder Peppers, two kinds of Eggplant, A mix of Broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, a mix of heirloom Tomatoes and Merigolds all started for the garden.
