20 of 24 seeds have sprouted. That’s pretty good for a start.
I was worried when, after pulling the dish towel off the sprouts, I saw that the new leaves were a reddish color, like they were starting to die, but after a day of light, they perked right up.
I’m not putting these in bright light, yet. I had them on a cookie sheet in the furnace room, and will be transferring them to the big, full-sun window in a week or so. But going from all dark to all bright seems a tad stupid. I also can’t figure out if the full sun in this window will be too hot. Maybe I can make an arrangement with the husband and kids to have the seedlings in sun but out of the window — if they can keep their toy cars from disturbing the roots. Often, they’re safer in the window.
