Herb Seedlings & Replanting

Checking on my herb seedlings that I planted two weeks ago, I see that basil (one peat pot on the top right and two on the bottom left) and cilantro (spindly seedlings in the two pots on the bottom right) germinated well and are healthy.  I’ll need to thin some of these when I transplant them.  Some of the parsley (top left) and zaatar marjoram (center row, third from left) are growing too.

herb seedlings:  parsley, marjoram, zaatar marjoram, basil, summer savory, more basil, and cilantro

Some herbs haven’t done so well.  There’s nothing to do but try again, so I sprinkled additional seeds of summer savory, parsley, and marjoram on top of the soil in their respective peat pots.  Most herb seeds are tiny and need to be planted at or near the soil surface.  To keep the seeds moist, I’ll mist them with a spray bottle twice a day.
