7 of out 8 tomato seeds have sprouted! It took about a week and a half until we saw the first sprout come up. Then one after another, the rest of the tiny plants started to pop out of the soil. The newest one showed up this morning, two weeks after we planted the seeds. They are growing so fast they actually look bigger after only a few hours. I’m starting to get excited for fresh tomatoes! And (fingers crossed) it looks like we may need to start thinking about finding some other homes for some of these sprouts instead of wondering whether our seeds will germinate!
