The Seed Starting Project is underway! We planted our first flat using all heirloom pepper and basil seeds. Pepper varieties include: Long Cayenne, Miniature Chocolate Bell, Alma Paprika, Kalman’s Hungarian, Santa Fe Grande and Tequila Sunrise. Basil varieties include: Genovese, Purple Dark Opal, and Thai. We’ve put the flat on a heat mat as bottom heat helps to promote germination for many seeds. Most of these varieties should germinate by the middle of next week.

The Green Committee of the Mount Prospect Public Library is excited to begin our Seed Starting Project! Look for our seed starting set-up in the lobby of the Library near the Registration Desk starting in early March. We will be planting peppers and basil to start. Later we will plant tomatoes and cucumbers. If you would like to know more about starting your own garden plants from seed or if you’d like to join in the discussion and share your experiences and seeds, please register for Seed Starting and Sharing on March 5, 2014 at 7 pm in Meeting Room B.
