    Sweet Basil seedlings emerging. When these have two or three sets of leaves on them, I will lift them from the dirt using a dinner fork (super handy garden tool), and transplant them into the garden and pots to give away to friends. Everyone likes basil.

    Heavenly Blue Morning Glory seedlings. The plastic collar is a section from a sports drink bottle. I call them plant moats. They help to protect young seedlings from slugs, snails or other crawling bugs.

    Two native varieties of milkweed seeds that were soaked overnight (following the LadyBird Johnson instructions). I was surprised to see that some of the orange milkweed (Tuberosa) seeds sprouted after just an overnight soak!

    This is the second step of the LadyBird Johnson instructions for germinating the milkweed seeds that did not already sprout. This step involves putting the pre-soaked seeds in equal amounts of moist perlite and vermiculite and storing in the refrigerator.

    I call these cilantro cooking bouquets. It is just some cilantro in a glass of water (vase), that is ready to use for cooking. The cilantro looks a little elongated because the plants are getting close to bolting or producing flowers/seeds.
