I went on a week long vacation to the tropics. I started some seeds in containers on March 28, 2011 and left them outdoors in DIY mini-greenhouses to germinate. Most of them had already sprouted before leaving for my trip. I watered the plants thoroughly, and used the plastic bag method and homemade greenhouses to keep the soil moist and the plants happy while I was away. I am happy to report that not only did all of the seedlings survive, but also more seeds have sprouted!
