Sprouts!

Last Saturday I started some seeds for the first time, and most of them have already sprouted. It's so exciting! After buying worms for the worm composting bin I made yesterday, I messed around with the "poor man's macro" this afternoon. Arkansas Traveler tomato

basil

pineapple tomato

Artichoke. Just kidding! This is a chick from my hen and chicks plant.

These are freakin awesome photos, even though I don't understand how they were taken. They look so mysterious, as if they are unlocking previously hidden biological details.

Thanks, Thomas! I was pretty happy they worked out. Next time I see you I'll show you how I did it.

These are gorgeous, Val. The light is amazing! How did you do it? Window? Flash? Tell is already!!!

Lol! Thanks Jakob--you won't believe it. I have two daylight balanced compact florescent lights on the seedlings, and a halogen (for warmth). I just used the light that was there. I put black mat board behind to deal with the insane vignetting.
