    Okay, I know y'all are getting tired of the Texas brag about gardening, but I decided to risk your collective wrath and tell you about the tomato seeds I received from Donna S.
    On Jan. 18, 2015 I planted two types of tomato seeds she sent. Today, Jan. 22, I moved two 9-cells under the lights since they germinated and were growing. The other type she sent is just breaking through, and probably will go under the lights in two days.
    I have never had tomato seeds germinate this quickly, and with what looks like 100% germination. WOW!
    Now Donna, I think you are entitled to a little Virginia brag!

    It's the worm poop. And I don't have to shovel it. :smt117

    One of the few places in the country you get Happy Seeds.

    Yeah Donna, but your worms don't lay eggs (well, they probably do but not the kind you want for breakfast!). :smt078

    Amish Paste are right on schedule! They moved from the heat mat to under the lights this morning. I'm so happy! :smt041
