3.21.12 Seedlings

It’s always a gratifying surprise to watch seedlings come up, each shoot the embodiment of optimism. These Aprile pomodorini seedlings are from seeds saved last fall.

Differing germination rates for fennel and leeks: the Finale fennel (top left) germinated before the Perfection (bottom left); the King Richard leeks (top right) before the King Sieg (bottom right).

    I love watching seeds germinate – particulary at the end of winter, I think the fact thats its cold makes the process more amazing and also exciting as it heralds spring.

    Very cute looking seedlings… can I have some? ;)
    Mine has yet to germinate…

  3. I’ve been watching my seedlings pop into life this week-the beans in particular I swear you can almost see growing right before your eyes!!
