Be sure that clears your late frost btw.
Yes, thank you. They won’t be strong enough to transplant before that happens. They are barely seedlings so it will be a good while before they sprout up and get leaves and a sturdy stem. I will set a date of 8 weeks from now and see how they’re doing since I know it also says not to transplant in the middle of summer or they’ll dry out or something. For now they’ll just be indoor plants and if I have to wait til next Spring I’ll wait.

WOW! THey're happy! Get them in some loose soil and keep them moist. You're off to a great start !
Thank you. I went and got some potting soil since I didn’t feel like breaking down the big clumps of soil from my garden area (empty garden). I potted them and have sprayed some water and they’re outside right now. Will be bringing them inside every night. Or can they handle the cool since they were in the refrigerator and still sprouted? It doesn’t get freezing cold, 30s at the lowest, but around 30-50 the next week at night. During the day it’s 50-70 degrees.

Good morning gardeners. @karenerwin great news for your mom, I'll bet she's really happy to be home! @BReeder! I hope you enjoy your trip to AZ, we're having great weather right now. Not much new in the garden, a few more sprouts but no jalapenos yet:hitIf they don't sprout by this weekend I'll put in a few more seeds. Have a great day everyone.
Indeed, the weather is great. The lows in AZ are higher than the highs in IL this week!

You all know I'm a meteorologist, right?

Apple seeds need a chill period, kept moist and in the dark and cold. After that germination can take up to 12 weeks before you see anything.

80% of apples grown from need are inedible, we call them tossers. Only wildlife will eat them they're so terrible. But since you said you just wanted the trees.
I wasn't quite sure. I know we have a problem with weather forecasts in my area. I think the problem lies in the somewhat local meteorologists trying to be as accurate as they can, however when given the broad area they are covering it's hard to really sum it all up with one forecast. The weather in eastern Massachusetts and Boston is usually very different than it is farther west and in higher elevations. I've tried to catch the weather forecast for southern New Hampshire, but again, their generalized weather forecasts rarely match what happens all over. The brief weather notes I get on my cellphone app are not always dependable, but a little closer to accurate. It's really annoying when the folks on TV are declaring what a warm winter we are having. Excuse me, I had to wrap my chicken run a month earlier this year because of the cold, have gone through 2 1/2 tons of heating pellets already and still have 1 1/2 inches of ice on my walkways. Oh, and it snowed again today. But the Boston news crew said this is rain. This is not a rant, just life in my little snow globe. We need more real local forecasts. Sorry, this was not intended to offend. Regarding Johnny Appleseed: according to one Massachusetts city nearby, Johnny is from there. They even named a school after him.
