Strawberries from seed

This strawberry plant has a long way to go before being planted outside. I've grown strawberries from seed once before but it was quite a while ago. My expectations for the few seedlings I have started this year are really low and my hope is that at least one plant grows to maturity. I think I'll also purchase some plants later this spring and see how those grow on the balcony. That is something I haven't tried before.

This years I also want to grow some onions from seed. I have some Spanish onions started and I plan to grow some scallions as well. And some kale, leeks and scarlet runner beans. For the past couple of years I've tried and failed to grow melons. This year I want to try a musk melon hybrid that is tolerant to a number of diseases. Maybe that will better my odds. And I'll grow tomatoes but I'm not sure which.
