Those little lettuce seeds sure delivered! I already have 5-6 seedlings trying to poke up from the dirt. So first lettuces germinated in just two days. They make me totally happy, and they give me something to focus on so I can try to be patient for my peppers. I know I shouldn't expect pepper seedlings yet (minimum 10 days to germination and I'm only on day 7) but I still check for them every day!

I'm already having to catch up with my seedlings! On Sunday I came home from a nice visit to Virginia and took advantage of daylight savings time to plant some seeds. I planted 5 cells of cucumbers and eight cells of pink climber tomatoes. I also sowed a handful of mixed lettuce and greens seeds in the bottom half of a gallon milk jug. I will almost certainly sow some more lettuce seeds in additional cells or direct-sow lettuce in the raised beds once it gets a bit warmer. These guys will just be microgreens or baby lettuces. In truth, I planted some lettuce mostly because lettuces are quick germinators and I was hoping for some near-instant gratification.
