Speedlings (3/7/10

I got ready to set up some seeds in a window to get them started for the planting season. I found some old peat pots in a closet from a few years before. Some of them had little 1/2 inch sprouts in them that were mummified. Sad. I put them in the window and put water on them so they'd be ready for new seeds. The water soaked in to the dried out sprouts and they turned green again. It was like watching a time lapse video of plants growing. The little sprouts started to jiggle as new leaves and branches bloomed from them and they grew taller. The explosive growth tapered off after the seedlings got to about 10 inches. I called my sister to tell her about it.
