Just a little over a month ago, I planted six German Queen tomato seeds that I had harvested from my family's garden in Alabama. Unfortunately, none of the seeds seemed to germinate. After a couple of weeks of waiting, I finally gave in to impatience and removed them. Yet I could only find five of the six that I had planted. Assuming that the other seed had rotted away (the five that I excavated were in pretty bad shape and showed no evidence of sprouting) I proceeded to plant a Hawaiian Tropic seed in the same pod. It came up three to four days later and everything seemed fine. Then, a few days ago, a new little plant popped up beside the Hawaiian seedling. It seems the German Queen decided to make a showing after all.
