I've been holding out on you

I went to post some knitting photos, and noticed I had some more seedling photos from last week that I hadn't posted yet!

Instead of a fan, I opened the window the other day to help strengthen the seedlings:

No, I don't have these in the sunniest window... but they're on the same side of the building that they'll mostly end up on. Plus, being in the kitchen, they get watered more regularly. ;) (Speaking of which, I think I need to water them again when I get home tonight.)

Problem: The window the seedlings are in front of is the one I put my AC in, and so there's no screen. The day this photo was taken, I ended up with a *big* wasp in my kitchen. Luckily I got it outside without being stung!

Calendula roots have no trouble growing through egg cartons. :)

I don't think I mentioned my window-chard either:
Goal: eat healthier.
Hypothesis: Vegetables don't go nasty as fast if they're alive.
Observation: Swiss chard has funny shaped seeds, and multiple seedlings grow from each seed.

I noticed this morning that my peppers are popping up, but didn't take a new photo. Sorry! I'll try to rectify that tonight or tomorrow. (Since I know you're all dying to know how my seedlings are doing! ;) )
