Signs of Life

Signs of Life
When I checked the cell trays this morning, I was pleased to find that a few seedlings had emerged. I had sown my fall crop of broccoli, zucchini, beans, and beets last Saturday night. Five days later, the beet seedlings have started to emerge! I'm a bit surprised considering that the seed packet indicated that germination took between 14 to 21 days. I was certain that the beans would be the first to germinate (7 to 14 days). Just when you think you know what to expect, mother nature throws you a curve ball. Still no sign of the broccoli, zucchini or beans.
