Tomato Seedling Update

Day 8 after potting I am proud to report that we have 60.46% germination!


That's 153/256 tomato seeds (the total is an estimate -- you shoot to put 3 seeds in each cell, but if you accidentally drop one, you only find out when your yield is > 100%).

I am excited to see what the final germination rate is -- in the last 24 hours we got 28 new sprouts, and I can only hope for a similar increase tomorrow between day 8 and day 9.
