Today's Topic:

Hello, My name is Robert and I live in Hampton Virginia closer to the east coast. I started my seeds inside about 2 weeks ago and I have tomato plants at 1inch and cucumbers at 1inch as well. I am still not seeing my cilantro, green bell peppers and chives as of yet. Do those three seeds need extra time to grow or are they just slower in development then the other seeds? Its not cold in my house and I make sure never to over water them.
