I'm very sorry, but I'm about to bore you with pictures of our plants. I can't help it - I'm far more enthralled with this project than I should be.

This is a Cosmo sprout - the latest addition to our little plant family. I planted this on Thursday, and it sprouted last night, making it the fastest-sprouting of the three by a long shot.

This is the pot o' tomatoes yesterday....

....and here they are today. They've definitely shown the most dramatic growth. A couple of the sprouts in this picture still have little seed husks stuck to their tips. I pulled them off so they could spread their leaves, but the last one I pulled was stuck, and I accidentally pulled the top half of the leaves off. I felt horrible about it - as if I had ripped off their arms or something. I hope that one survives.

And here we have the thyme. Reaching for the sun. I love moving them around during the day just to see them stretch in the direction of the light.

OK. I'll stop now. Thanks for indulging me.

Awww, they all look great!

I'm so excited about this. Perhaps a little bit too excited!! I can't wait to get started planting stuff w/the boys!

Hi! I hope the one whose top leaf was pulled off by mommy recover... did it? :>

Congrats on the plant babies, : ) I grow hundreds of seedlings each year and I'm always enthralled, well...unless they die on me, LOL!

Well, there are no dead tomato plants (yet), so I guess it came through OK.

I was so inspired, I've now got a 72 "pot" flat with green beans, peas, carrots, basil, chives, cilantro, zucchini, and canteloupe. I planted everything on Sunday, and I've already got some tiny little bean sprouts, and I think a carrot and a pea, though those are so teeny it might be to early to be sure.

We'll see if maybe I've gone overboard a tad. I guess I've still got a little bit of time to figure out where the heck I'm going to put all this stuff in my yard!
