Happily, those lettuce and spinach seeds that I planted last Wednesday have germinated and are growing like weeds (oh I hope there are no weeds in my indoor beds....I just couldn't take that after this past summer!) The lettuce germinated in 2 days....I am sure due to the heat mats.
(lettuce at 3 days)
The spinach took 4 days.
Oh, I can hardly wait for some home grown salad!! I will start a few more flats as soon as these have a strong foothold.
