I started these 10 cups of beets as a germination test in April. 8 out of 10 germinated.  Not bad for last years.
  This pic was taken in May.

Two months later and still growing in a cup. I just keep moving them to shade when it's hot.

I missed the purpose of this project. To see how the seeds germinated? followed by "I can't throw them out!" ?

The project was: Plant 10 cups and see how many germinated. 8 out of 10 germinated = 80% germination. It was just a test.

I can't throw ANYTHING out once it starts to grow. It's almost like murder..  No   This spring, I had some seed left over after planting so I just threw the seed down on the ground at the end of the container row. A few days ago, I harvested two small yellow Zucchini and some Arugula from those seed.

Beets in a cup update 3170584802 cheers That is so me!  I just over-trimmed a tomato plant, rooted the sucker, and am getting ready to plant this baby out.  It is so healthy!!!

I had leftover tomato, squash, etc. starts from indoor sowing. I planted the tomatoes in one of the compost bins and the squash in a pile of stuff (clumps of sod, soil, weeds, trimmed plants) that was sitting on the ground to be sorted and used if possible for composting. These things are all flourishing. It's amazing where things will grow.
