Last night I decided to start a fun family competition with my husband Rolling on the floor laughing (inside joke @ gingin) and two daughters. We each had two cups each and chose which seed each one wanted to plant. I labeled them with the date, seed, and their names on the cup. We had friendly trash talk of whose would grow first. It was a great family activity that we could do together. I will keep everyone posted. Happy Planting everyone.

Cool! Maybe we could have a contest like that online.

Send in photos of the first radicle, the first seedling leaves, the first true leaves ...

the first damping-off death ...
the first "it grew right into the light bulb and fried" ...
the first "the cat ate my seedlings" ...

It does sound fun.

It baffles me that some people need yachts and world travel to amuse themselves.

Give us a packet of seeds and a square foot of soil & sun, and we're happy as clams in mud.

And seed traders can have fun without even that square foot!
