Super Quick Germination

Here's the deal:  Seeds started on Sunday night. By Tuesday night there are already a handful of seeds germinated and popping up. Did I not say that the Jiffy Greenhouse top was awesome? Others may find this 2 day germination rate kind of 'meh' but for us it is always exciting (especially after the peat pot debacle of 2010).

Popped up so far: 3 kinds of basil (6 sprouts so far), a cucumber, a cherokee purple tomato, and a leek.


  1. That *is* exciting! Time for me to start poking my husband about the tomatoes. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog ... I love the name of yours! Parsnips are SO underappreciated.

  2. They are, aren't they? I should do a parsnip post :) Thanks fr stopping by. You are my first comment ever!
