This was a nice surprise today!
I planted tomato seeds on the 13th and hadn't seen any signs of sprouting yet, so Friday night I went up to McLendon Hardware and got a seedling heat mat (I was going for just the mat, but they had the Hydrofarm Germination Stationon sale, so I got that. Comes with a tray and dome also.) I put the seeds in it that night and had some little baby sproutlings Sunday morning! They might have come up on their own anyway, after being in the dirt for a week, but I'm thinking the heat helped.
I planted twelve different varieties and a few of them haven't made an appearance yet, but I am optimistic. And if they don't come up I've got plenty of time to try again.
