Spinach sprouts

My most recent spinach “crop” (to use the term very loosely) appears slightly more successful. After sprouting the seed in a dampened napkin – which took about for days – I planted it in a container of potting dirt outside. 3 days later, it pushed through the surface of the soil.

I had tried sprouting several other seeds at the same time, and despite their having no visible sprouts I planted them in the pot alongside the sprouted seed. As of this morning (Day 8), though, only the one appears to be growing. I’m beginning to wonder if the seed packet was bad due to poor storage or something.

Anyway, Spinach Watch 2010 continues…
