Just a few seeds of each, but what a beautiful assortment! She also sent a very nice letter encouraging the kids to grow some fun stuff too. I'd been focusing on getting herb seeds for #2 to help foster his passion for cooking, but #3 asked if she could get special seeds too. Tonight we planted a couple black-eyed susan seeds in a container, and she got to put it in her bedroom. I'm not sure it will survive the three girls, plus the cats long enough to blossom and be transplanted outside, but it made her happy before bed time. Now #4 insists that tomorrow she gets to plant something in a container for her room too - and she intends to start a tomato plant. I will try to encourage her to pick a flower variety instead.
I've been putting off the second tray I want to plant with tomato seeds until I can get a second grow light, but I feel like I'm running out of time to plant in order for them to be big enough when it's time to move them outside. I'll be going over to my parents' house tomorrow for our weekly visit now that the kids are all feeling better. I'll see if they have a light I could borrow so I can get to finishing up my pre-season planting! I have more tomatoes, herbs, and a couple pepper seeds I want to get growing.
The lettuce and the onions that I am re-growing from "butt ends" are looking good. It makes me wonder why anyone would throw them away if they're so easy to regrow!
