Watch Your Seed Depth
Much in the same way as with my Tomatoes, I also want to get my pepper plants in the dirt (in small starter pots). I put the in the same day as I did my tomatoes. As of right now I have nothing that has broken the surface but I did do a bit of digging with a chop stick -of all things into one of the pots and the seeds have germinated -at least the in the one I investigated. It has been close to three weeks no and I am going to assume that it is a matter of cool temperatures in the house and I probably planted the close to 1/2 inch deep which is way to deep for a pepper seed. I do think that they will emerge but it may be a few more days before I see the miracle of the seeds bursting above the surface.
The moral: patience and don’t plant seeds deeper than the are meant to be. Remember in nature seeds fall on the ground …. there is no one there to dig a nice little hole and water it everyday.
