sweet basil seeds sprouting

See next photo (www.flickr.com/photos/lynnszwalkiewicz/328469144/) for a size comparison.

 

I decided this weekend after visiting Good Harvest and picking up an Organic Gardening magazine on impulse, that I needed to start an herb garden. The problem I ran into is that no one carries seeds this time of year, not even Steins Garden & Gifts. Finally I ended up at Walmart and got this Chia Terra Cotta Herb Garden. I am going to use it as a starter and repot later.

 

This is day 3 and I figured these Sweet Basil seeds were goners. They got gooey and purple the first night. But look! There are itsey bitsey sproutings happening in there!
