The seeds I planted 3 weeks ago are growing! The seeds of the Italian plants are almost 6 inches tall. The coneflowers are about 1/2 inch tall. I guess now I know why a coneflower from a nursery costs $8. They must keep them in the green house for 2 years!
Phoebe is doing great. She will probably be bred early next week, then we'll see in a month or so if she is actually pregnant. She'll go back to the breeder for the end of the pregnancy and the delivery.
