DAY 3 after planting:

This past Saturday we had out first seedlings sprout up!  It made our day, we were so excited to see the green popping through the soil.  On the 3rd day after planting,  the Snowdrift Marigolds were the first to poke their little heads through!

Day 4 after planting:

By Sunday, the Alyssum were popping up in rows. They are the ones planted in strips of bio-degradable paper. Easy to sow, plant in perfect rows, etc. I need longer pots to plant the rest, but oh well… baby steps.
