How about sharing some pics of the newbies? Kit and Gary planted alot of seed this year. I'm sure they have some pics to share.

Here's a few for starters. These are a few weeks old, need to take some new pics.
Many of our seeds came from Colette. Elizabeth donated some Double D Cup seeds. Lots of our own crosses and open pollinated. Some we bought from Stuart Asch, B & V Skaggs, Ben and Rod Kuenster, Ron Livingston and probably a few others I can't remember right now.
We just repotted seedling # 1501. Many more to go as we are still planting seeds. Blinking
Are we ambitious or nuts? I vote nuts, NUTS!!! We'll be crowded out of the house before spring! Could this be why I have spring fever so bad?

Picture is my favorite seedling: Rosedale Shady Lady X Atom Smasher.

Here's a Maya Swingtime seedling that came to the Winter Gardening Fair with us. It's so big because it was started in late September. The rest of our seeds were started after Thanksgiving

I think the one called "streaked seedling of unknown parentage" is beautiful.

A little talent, a lot of luck - could use a little touch up, but not bad for a quick temporary banner. I am hoping Andy will help make some real panoramic pics for us to use. I would love some of my garden anyway.

I'm sure Andy would enjoy taking panoramic pictures of people's hostas! I sent him this thread in case he is not following it already.

Here are a couple from last year (2009), and I would be pleased to take more this year!
