The seeds germinated!

In my previous post a couple of days ago, I showed you how to check and see if old seeds are viable before you either throw them away, or waste your time and space by planting them. All of the seeds germinated in less than 3 days! What really surprised me was the date they were originally tested was 2006 and I purchased them in 2007. Here are some pictures. You couldn't see them good on the white paper towels, so I put some on my kitchen table. They were sunflower seeds, bachelor buttons, cosmos, and zinnias. Again, all sprouted.
