We've had several plants successful germinate. So far, our green beans, mesclun and cilantro are thriving. Chives and parsley are starting to take root. We also have a budding crop of carrots and radishes, and are waiting on germination from lettuce, cabbage, chinese cabbage, and tomatoes.
I also ordered more seeds. I'm most excited for cucumber seeds!
