Direct sowing is a guaranteed failure at my place! :-( I put one or two seeds in a small pot and transplant when they have enough roots to hold the mix, it varies from variety to variety. This time I sprouted the bigger seeds (beans, corn) between kitchen paper on a plate then put into the pots. They sprouted very quickly, it's so warm that they can't help themselves but to grow. There's less setback with direct sowing but then there's less sprouting too at least for me.

Yes these are the ones you gave me Elaine, they are amazing how fast they grow, they are at least three times this size now and I planted them a day or so before Chrissy. Yes I direct sow them, I never seem to have much luck with replanting anything, maybe im a bit heavy handed I don't know but everything grows better for me this way :-)

They sure look healthy - mine are skinnier than these! I've got my seedlings climbing up a group of corn. Did you sow direct?

Are these from the seeds we swapped at Roma Street? They are such enthusiastic growers! Pick them young - 2-3 inches long for super sweetness and crunch.
