My parents came down to visit while I was on march break and my mom helped me get some seedlings started. I had purchased a mckenzie grow easy. This has a heating pad underneath to give the seed pods heat. I planted fennel, carrots, cucumber, jalepenos, sweet peppers, snow peas, beefsteak tomatoes, romain lettuce and Swiss chard. After only a couple days the cucumber has already sprouted and the snow peas and broccoli have started.
