It could take a couple of weeks for parsley to germinate. Follow the seed packet instructions. I'm planning to sow heirloom tomato seeds and I always grow lettuces from seeds.

Inspired by both of you Don & Jo Ellen. Thanks for posting, would you share what seeds you are sowing this gardening season?

Parsley has gone a week now without germinating, when do you know to start over with a fresher batch of seeds?

I will definitely check out the site, this year I am doing something different with the garden, reducing the square footage and utilizing containers. I will be blogging the results at http://www.dnlemmon.blogspot.com

Good for you, Don. Sounds like you're ready. I'm definitely ready for the big melt.
Check out the Hoosier Gardener 2/27/10 for an update on Midwestern gardeners, what we're growing and how we compare to what's happening nationally. I can hardly wait for that first bite of a homegrown tomato!

I am ready! planting plan is all down on paper, new soil tests last fall, compost pile is full waiting on me, and almost all my seeds have been shipped (no gmo's all heirloom this year)
