Call it Mother Nature, or call it Murphy’s Law, but the gardener is only a player on the growing stage.
One thing we have learned is that no matter how long you wait for a seedling to sprout, as soon as you replant, the first one will come up.
Followed very quickly by the more recently planted.
The second planting of seeds were marked in this picture above. A week later the first seed sprouted. One more week and here you have it.
Apparently this also holds true when you reuse seed starting mix.
We finally gave up on a few seeds that never sprouted, and dumped the mix in with our potting soil.
This little patio tomato, center above, was potted up about 2 weeks ago. Now it has a tall friend, some kind of brassica, with it. It kind of looks like kale, but we shall know soon enough.
In case that isn’t enough, another little seedling is joining in.
So far, this one ain’t talkin’.
