A tiny celery plant, planted 11 days ago

In a post yesterday, I said that my Wakefield cabbage plants didn’t germinate well. I was wrong. I had misread the chart on which I recorded what was planted where in the starter trays. It actually was celery that appeared to have a problem. But now I can see that the celery seeds actually are germinating. They’re just much smaller seeds and slower to appear. So far, six of the 10 celery seeds are up.

The plants are looking much better now that I’ve lowered the grow light closer to the plants. If all continues to go well, 95 percent of the seeds I planted will make it all the way to the garden.

For comparison, this is an 11-day-old brussels sprout
