My seedlings have sprouted!

These are a few of my "Black Beauty" variety Eggplant seedlings.  I planted these seeds back around February 5 in large pots.  They took over 2 weeks to sprout, but are doing well now.  The "Rosa Bianca" variety Eggplant haven't sprouted yet, and they were planted on the same day.  I read that they take approximately 3 weeks to sprout, so I'm trying not to worry about it yet, but (((wow))) they take a long time to appear!

The boys have been "helping" me plant (read: making a big mess), but it's worth the mess to teach them how to grow the seeds.  I'm worrying that maybe the Rosa Bianca eggplant seeds got planted too deep, but that really doesn't seem possible as the boys are really careful about planting at the correct depth.  Hopefully they'll show themselves soon.

Here is a picture of my "Black Beauty" eggplants!  Hard to believe that something this small will grow large enough to grow eggplant.  It always amazes me.


  1. Hooray, and I like your new header!

  2. Thanks for sharing... I have a question. Did you plant the seeds into a large pot and divide the seedlings with plastic cups? Seems like a nifty idea. Would love to learn a bit more about growing from seeds. :)

  3. I love seeing those little tiny sprouts grow into fruit bearing size, always amazing!

    Our seeds are sprouting, too :) .
