Started seeds 2 weeks back, this time there is cucumber, bush tomato, cherry tomato, 2 kinds of eggplants, okra and bitter gourd besides hot chilli peppers and Jalapenos. Among the flowers, the ones that have sprouted : sunflower, snapdragons, garden bells, heliotropes, marigold (from last year's flowers). I am still waiting for the roses and strawberries to sprout ...
The seeds were sowed in cow pots and organic seed starting medium. Apparently the cowpots disintegrate when you place them in the soil when you transplant. So that makes transplanting easier besides it being biodegradable and all.
