Peas Gone Wild

(Photo of my pea seedlings)

I planted a few seeds back around February 22 and so far my lettuce, peas, and blue fescue grass has managed to sprout - but not anything else. I may have to transplant my peas into larger containers as their roots are already growing out of the peat pots. They are growing like crazy - I had to take them out of the tray and put them in a tall jar.

I want to plant the rest of my garden seeds but the packaging says not too until April and May for many of the seeds. :( But can I really plant them too soon? I am new to this I have no clue!

If you are talking about sowing seeds indoors for tomatoes and peppers, if you sow them too early, they will get all leggy and spindling before it is safe to plant them out in the garden. That's why I wait until sometime around early mid-March to sow those seeds.

I haven't planted tomatoes indoors yet, just my peppers (which just sprouted yesterday), and lettuce and peas...the peas are going crazy and are already a few inches tall...the lettuce is what worries me - they all do look very thin.
