Seedlings, seedlings, seedlings!

About a third of the sprouted onion seeds are peeking out of the newspaper pots, the Tom Thumb lettuce has begun to poke out of their peat pellets (but not the Red Gem lettuce, so far), the Alexandria strawberries sprouted beautifully in their damp take-out box and have been moved to peat pellets (I've also put several Alpine Strawberry seeds on pellets), and I'm still waiting anxiously to see the first tomato seedling.

I've decided I'm a fan of sprouting seeds before putting them in any kind of soil. You have to watch cautiously for signs of that annoying fuzzy white mold, though.
