So our plants are NOT taking off at all. We planted from seeds. The seeds we used were suppose to be these awesome heirloom seeds my SIL gave me but the only things that are popping up are seeds we bought last year. I think a good portion of it is the soil we have right now. We have a bit of lettuce coming up, some peas, a zucchini (sp? and it's only one) I think and a salad cucumber (only 1). We haven't even planted potatoes yet.
