So far, my experiment has been a wonderful success. After being out of town for the DC Snowquester, I returned to find many of my seeds (planted last weekend) SPROUTED! Take a look: I moved all the seed-starting trays (and tupperwares) to the sun-room They are now under three lights to help provide additional warmth and light for the new veggie-life. I have also been keeping up with my new garden journal and added in the dates of germination for the seeds that germinated so far.
It was a beautiful day, and I spent it daydreaming about the garden.
