Let the sprouting begin!

Nothing makes me happier mid winter than knowing spring is just around the corner, and the marker for me is when it's time to start germinating my seeds for my garden!  This year I decided to germinate a few seeds in wet paper towels, dampened with a little bit of seaweed solution. I started them on 2/22/15.
 After nearly 3 days here are the Giant Szegedi sweet pepper seeds.
 After nearly 3 days here are the Gold Berries Tomato seeds, a new cherry type tomato I'm going to plant this spring.
After nearly 3 days here are the seeds of the Sensitive plant. Last year I grew them directly in potting soil and their germination was very sporadic! So I'm not surprised that only 3 have sprouted.
