Re: hum......


I go by the first true leaves, and other characteristics like square stems
vs. round.

Mostly, I just hope that the chipmunks haven't disturbed my seed flats, and
keep my fingers crossed that I don't dump the trays myself ;-).

As for dormant plants, the square vs. round stems sorts out some, stem and
root color and scent sorts the others, and after that it's poke and hope
time again for me.

If anyone else has a better way, I'd love to learn it.
