I Have Seedlings!!

My little overachiever's have sprouted. Only 6 of the 18 seedling pots are showing sprouts but I'm excited to see them come to life! The baby food tubs are working very well and I've doubled them up on the sprouted seeds since I needed to remove their lids and it will be harder to make sure the moisture is adequate. I put just enough water to reach the bottom of the seedling pot that way the soil can soak up what it needs. The photo below is what they will look like when they start to bloom. They are 'Frolic' Sweet Peas from the Select Seeds catalog. Now I need to figure out where I'm going to plant them! [well, I do have some idea but I have to over-analyze my options, I'm a Virgo, that's what I do.:o)]

Isn't life grand, even on the smallest level?! What joy in the promise of life. Happy Spring!

Those are going to be so pretty! And I just got my seeds from selectseeds-- I hope to have some beautiful hollyhocks this year!

Lin, Life is grand, I think that is why I'm so thrilled with my little seedlings.

Athena, good luck with the hollyhocks, we have some in the back. They are one of my FIL favorites. Hope to see some photos on your blog :o)
