Non-Peat Plastic Greenhouse

Now that you've seen some of the seeds, I figured I should show what they're growing in:  my non-peat coconut coir temporary plastic greenhouse.  These things are pretty slick:  you place a pod in each compartment, pour water on top and they grow like Sea Monkeys.  They eventually stop being so cylindrical and fill up the whole compartment much like what would happen if you just poured soil into each one.

There's 72 little compartments - each with a few seeds.  We'll know in a week or so if anything pops up or germinates.

By the way...did you know we're not supposed to be using peat?  This dire warning came with the kit.  It takes 220 years to regrow the amount of peat we use for gardening purposes?  That's crazy talk.
