The Seed Report: Day 8

Whoa! Look at our little seeds and their sprouts - we are surprised by how fast these have shot up! Looks like we need to get these in the ground (or pots) really fast...

It's only the eighth day that these have been in their peat pellets but already they're looking leggy and too stretched out for the little soil sacks to support.

We're planting the beans in their own big, deep container, and we're putting the beets in a long shallow trough. The greens, cucumbers, and radishes will go in more large yet not too deep containers.
