In The Garden: New Seedlings

I planted some seeds in my re-useable seedling containers about a couple of weeks ago and left them outside.  I was afraid I might have jumped the gun on planting season because I was not seeing any signs of life the first week, but on the eighth day I discovered most of my seeds have sprouted.  The Cosmos and Calendulas were the first to emerge.  Now my African Daisies, Poppies and Gysophilas have also peeked through the soil.

Nice blog. I've been in my apt for almost 4 years but am only now attempting my first garden. I was inspired by an article in Natural Home Mar/Apr called "Hatch This", where you plant your seeds in egg shells and transfer to outdoors when appropriate (or you can give them as a gift). I also am using a herb "starter" kit that I got from home depot.

Here are my "egg hatchlings" (about 2 weeks old):

If you're interested, here's the link to the Natural Home article:

Thanks Melissa! The photo of your egg shell planters and indoor herb garden looks wonderful! I like the image-over directions too!
