Hi there - I'm getting a little sad - I went a planted seeds (to late I think for our hot weather) in the soil I prepared in some new raised beds my hubby & I made - and they aren't coming up. At first I didn't water them enough and now I think I've watered them too much - I got mushrooms overnight! Any helpful suggestions would be great! I feel dumb - cause I know I should have started some of the seeds in-doors first - should I replant the seeds I have left? I'm not sure what to do.... I'm green (pardon the pun)

new veggie girl,

Seeds dont germinate over nite.
Try to shade them a little.

Also dont plant them deeper than the packet says.
Each packet tells what depth to plant the seeds.

Try seeds for your zone......I am zone 5.

good luck dont give up,

yah even indoors in a covered container, tomatoe plants took about 4-6 days to germinate. pepper plants took me almost 2 weeks! (i thaught for sure they were goners) Squash, cuc's dont even bother germinating indoors. . . they grow so quick!

your in Michigan.. you get lots of cold like I do in Penna...
Just last week ours warmed to 82.. I hate that.
tomatoes usually take longer than that for me.
i invested in a heating cable this winter.. i had seeds inside in February.. Some too soon.

Just remember......You cant fool mother nature!
those seeds are tricky..

Dodge I agree with you. I have learned here to just wait till it warms up to plant okra. And get a good stand every year. Others have troubles trying to plant earlier. Most of the time it is due to early planting. An old timer that I learned a lot from always said too not transplant till the volunteers sprouted. It always worked. I put out tomatoes early this year and they are barely ahead of the ones I waited a month on. Hard to fool Mother Nature. JD
