They’re heeere. It took a few warm days but teeny bits of green have finally emerged. Twelve whole days after the seeds were planted, the basil and tomatoes have begun their journey.

Thanks to the sun-warmed and south-facing seeding room, the flowers that were planted just four days ago have already germinated. Next year POD should really hunt down a good seed starting mix and make a point of keeping them a little warmer.

For now, we’ll just make sure they receive plenty of sun (augmented by a carefully rigged grow light), gentle waterings, and encouraging words.
