The day before yesterday the very first pepper plant started to peek out of the dirt. By last night a few more started to poke up. This morning there are a few more joining the others. There are still a lot of pellets without any seedlings yet, but I'm hoping for the best. Not that we really need 72 bell pepper plants, but it would be very nice to have a big selection. So far most of the new seedlings are coming up from the "rainbow" seeds we bought from the store. Only two plants are sprouting from the seeds we harvested from a pepper we bought at the grocery store. We'll see what the success ratio is once they're all up and growing (or not).
We also planted 24 cucumbers, 24 peas, and 24 broccoli and I hadn't checked on the seed tray because they weren't supposed to be sprouting yet, but today I was surprised to find that the seedlings sprouting in the second tray are bigger than the pepper plants!
