Kiwi Sprouts and Strawberry Updates

I planted the kiwi seeds on 1/26/12 and I looked at the pots today and I have 3 sprouts that just popped up.  I have no idea what variety they are, just store bought fruit.  These seeds were not stratified.  I will see if the other 3 seeds germinate.  

My strawberries are doing well too.  Their leaves are beginning to look like mature strawberry leaves.  Hopefully soon they will be big enough to transplant.

On Pause

My gardening this year, with the exception of what is in pots already, is not going to happen.  In two weeks I'm moving an hour away.  It'll be the middle of growing season and I will not have a lot of room to take things.  I'll keep blogging though.

USDA Hardiness Zones

My hardiness zone has changed. The USDA released a new hardiness map for 2012.  I was in 6b but now it's 7a.  Find your hardiness zone @ USDA Plant Hardiness Zone.

So my husband likes to get precut fruit.  The packages he's been buying has kiwi in it and I thought, of course, can I grow kiwi from seeds?  I looked it up and it seems possible.  I pulled out seeds and planted 6 and put the rest in the freezer in case they need stratification.  

On another note, the weakest strawberry sprouts are beginning to die off.  I have about 13 still living.
