Parsley - starting indoors vs. outdoors
I sowed parsley seeds outside 4-6 weeks ago, and after some careful nursing they have mostly sprouted and seem to be starting their first real leaves. Despite starting most things indoors, I started the parsley outside because my indoor starting area was full at the time.
A couple spots in my outdoor parsley bed were looking like they didn't take, so about a week ago I started a few more seeds indoors on my heat mat to fill-in the holes outside. They're already beginning to sprout. I think my outdoor parsley would be a 2-3 weeks ahead of where it is now if I'd had room to start it indoors...
We'll see if the indoor starts survive transplanting outside, but the start indoors seems much, much faster than outside.
