I went to check on the plants in the loft today and re-pot some tomatoes when I noticed the tobacco seedlings are all coming up. They were planted 13 days ago today. Looks to be a pretty good germination rate but it is hard to tell as yet because they are so tiny. Tobacco is a very slow starter but once it gets growing good it grows very quickly.
These babies will stay in the trays they are in now until they are a little over an inch tall and then will be transferred into grow cups for a few weeks before going to the garden plot. If I remember correctly last year it was about two weeks before they reached the point of transplantation. The seedlings in the picture are probably pretty close to life size. Look hard as they are hard to see. I tried to blow them up but my camera just isn't made for taking pictures of microscopic things.
