not to jinx myself, but i've grown some darn beautiful seedlings from seed. a funny thought since usually when i do this....NOTHING survives. or they get totally small fruits.
i tried a new method i found on uncle toms garden taking me back to grade school, where you germinate seeds between wet paper towels until they sprout, then planting. true to form and blog, i had HUNDREDS of plants growing out of my ears. i am actually giving them away since i do not have room enough to plant all of them in my little city garden.
