The first round of cucumber and beet seeds did sprout, but died when we went to Omaha over Easter weekend. I've since replanted those and they're doing better this time- knock on wood! The peppers, like I said, never sprouted and it's too late to re-start those seedlings now. We probably don't get enough sunlight for them anyway (stupid tree in front of our balcony).
The chives are doing great and the basil and cilantro are sprouting as well. We can't wait for those to be ready!
