Lettuce seed help, please
Well, I've been busy in the garden today!
I Finally planted the lettuce seeds, phew!
Silly thing is, I'm watching them to see when they sprout! yeah, two hours is enough time, right?
I did mark the labels with the planting date so I'll be ready when two weeks is up...so I can welcome the new sprouts!
I'm afraid to water them though, won't I just disturb the area and the seeds??
I decided to put them directly in the tub so now I have to water from above. Do I need to put gravel or mulch on top along the sides of the rows in order to not disturb too much? I only have cedar mulch, is that okay to use? I have an endless supply of pebbles though.
Am I babbling? I've never done this before and I'm real excited about getting these to sprout.
I did follow Skybird's advice and avoided vermiculite. But, that is really all I know about this process.
