Helianthus,

I don't know the answer to the curling leaves, but I think it is great you are getting things growing. I have to agree that planting indoors would probably stress me out too--especially since this year I must have three dozen plus plastic shoeboxes filled with countless seeds. I'm glad those are outside.

I can handle veggies in the sun porch or by the bay windows...I just have to get them planted!

...and each year spring goes by without me separating the seedlings and planting them in the ground. That normally happens in the fall...as late as November sometimes. This year the ground froze before I'd planted everything I had in the ground! This year. I'll have about three times as many!

Yellowing could be from over-watering, or lack of nutrients. They are not quick to give up life though. I like to blow on my seedlings. They seem to enjoy the CO2.

I have found this to be helpful. They have the different zones to give a general idea of when to start indoors or outdoors.

Thanks! I hope they'll pull through. I'm trying to cut down on the watering and I snipped off the worst looking leaves. I'm hoping the new leaves coming in will be healthier. I think I'll put them in bigger pots soon, too.
Every year it's something, but by July it all works out.
