the seeds are sprouting, the seeds are sprouting!

“Behold my friends, the spring has come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love.”

– Sitting Bull


My first seeds have sprouted.  They are broccoli sprouts.  I ordered De Cicco broccoli seeds from  According to the description, it is an old European heirloom variety that can mature in as little as 48 days or take as long as 90 days.  It should produce 3-4 main heads on each plant that will be approximately 3 feet in height (.9144M).  It has only been about 36 hours.  I am so excited.  It must be the heating mats.  As it turns out, reptile mats are just as effective as normal seed starting mats, but cost signficantly less.  I wonder if any other new arrivals will join us today…one can only hope!!!
