A quick update on my almost 2 week old chia seedlings. They are looking a little spindly but still a bright healthy green. Not sure if the growing season here is long enough for these plants to produce seeds. We shall see!

Growing stronger roots for seedlings?!
I just came across a video showing a very interesting method to pot up seedlings. Instead of teasing out the roots to pull apart the plants, this gardener cuts the seedlings at the base of the plant just above the soil. He then throws the seedlings into some water and then puts the seedlings into individual pots. I understand with tomatoes the stem will form roots, but he proceeded to do this with pepper and eggplant seedlings. Apparently, this methods forces the plant to produce strong root system. So interesting. It is in subtitled in Japanese but the visual is clear enough. Link --> Skip to minute 2.
