|Are you able to plant the seeds that you sprout in the baggies????|

|I have, yes. |
Some of them got too cold outdoors and perished (I think), but most of them are from 2 to 6" tall by now. Some of the balsam impatiens are 10" tall already and we're still having frosty weather. I guess I should start pinching some of these seedlings back.

|They are calling for cooler weather here too. My poor plants don't know what is going on...|
I have a terrible time sowing seeds indoors but do pretty good with ones outside...

|I just found a Cecily phlox sprout that by all rights should be dead. The container was feather-light; there really couldn't have been much (if any) moisture in there at all...plants just continue to be amazing, don't they? |

|Tell you what I did. |
Here awhile back I started some tomato seeds in the Jiffy 7 pellets. I don't care for these things but I keep hoping I'll get to like them. some of the seeds came up and the ones that didn't I put in a little bucket. Put the bucket outside and gave up on them ever growing. I have the nicest little tomato out there. Ain't that something????

|It truly is! I can't grow a thing in a jiffy pellet, not even so much as a weed. They're either bone dry, or sopping wet. |
It's so nice to hear about your surprise tomato.
I need to get some soaking pretty soon. I usually start them way too early, but now might be good.

|That is probably part of my problem too. I'll get you a picture....|
