I love watching seeds sprout through the dirt, or through the peat moss, as in my case. Tonight, just three full days after I pushed the seeds into peat pellets, more than 20 of the 72 pellets have seedlings popping up out of them, up from about eight last night. The new sprouts include red cherry tomatoes, pumpkins and the peppermint zinnias.

All three types of zinnias have now sprouted.

At this rate, I’ll have to repot the zinnias in another week. I have to admit, I’m excited to see the different flowers on the purple, pinwheel and peppermint zinnias. They’ll make a nice addition to any one of my raised beds or even some of the pots.
