The Tomatoes Are Sprouting! Well, some of them...
So it looks like I'm having a dramatic demonstration of germination rates declining as your seeds age. I have some quite old seed packets - 5 yrs, maybe? - and some of them haven't come up at all. Others are starting to germinate. Sungolds, Yellow Pear, and Amish Paste are up. No sign of Red Cherry Large Fruited. Today I planted San Marzano, Rutgers, Brandywine, and 4th of July. Also Ping Tung Long eggplant and Husk Cherries.
