I am thrilled that all of my seeds germinated! Especially the rare ones I got from trading with an ATP member.

They are in my classroom. I teach Spanish, so it is appropriate. The beginnings of salsa! The middle school students are always fascinated to see how they've grown Thumbs up

Those look like healthy seedlings!
What a good side lesson for your students!

I think it's great that you bring them to the classroom. Sparking children's interest in growing their own food,(and other things), is always a plus! Thumbs up Thumbs up

I just discovered Fedco this year and ordered some tomatoes from them as well -- how have I missed that company for all this time?? I've been looking for a bean variety called "Limelight," which is supposed to be a "lima bean for the north," although it isn't actually a lima... and Fedco had it this year (so of course I couldn't order just that, and there's always room for more tomato seeds Big Grin
