Grow Baby, Grow!
Back in January, I started two flats of seeds consisting of chiles, tomatoes and some flowers. In total, I planted 144 seeds. While my expectations were low (because of the age of the seeds), I was hoping that more than four would germinate. Of the 144 seeds, only one chile, two tomatoes and one canna sprouted. I waited for quite some time to make sure I wasn't rushing them before conceding failure. Initially, I thought we'd just purchase some seedlings once the farmers' market opened in April. But then the familial stubborn streak kicked in and I was determined to have seedlings from seeds I started.
