seeds in their peat pods before tiny green sprouts starting poking through the soil. The lettuce seeds were the first to come through, but it wasn’t long before the others caught up. Beans and peas also quickly shot up from the soil.

It wasn’t long before we required new pots for the sprouts. We successfully transplanted the peas and beans to larger pots. Now we just need the snow to let up so we can get these little seedlings outside.
