reap what you sow

Doesn't this picture say spring!

I love zinnia's and I have never started flowers from seeds so I thought I would see what happens

I bought this kit from the nursery

and the directions say to fill the individual circles with water
then put your seeds down and gently cover them with the dirt

so here they are with the seeds lightly covered

Then cover it with a lid and leave them in the sun...
this is day 2, can you believe it?

It like magic...the little leaves are poking out after 2 days.
and here it is 7 days later!  Now the instructions say to leave it outside in the shade and gradually put it in the sun and once the leaves are strong enough you can plant them.   How do I know when they are strong enough? hmmmm
