The first tomato is up!

A tomato seed has sprouted.  Here it is, forcing itself out of the soil mix:

The tomato seeds were planted six days ago, so it sprouted quite quickly.  I don’t use a heat mat or other heat source (when we had hot water heating, I would put the seed-starting pots on the radiators) so they are at room temperature, about 67°F.
