A single sprout

It's been 5 weeks and about 3 or 4 days and I have a single, tiny sprout from my strawberry seeds.  Hopefully more will sprout too.  If it survives I'll post some pictures.   It is too small to get a non-blurry picture right now.

Another Update

My strawberries still have not sprouted. :(  I am definitely going to buy some seeds/starter plant from a nursery in the spring.  

Also, my pineapple didn't make it either.  It began to rot.  Two days of drying out must not have been enough.  Not to mention that Smyrna tap water is horrible and what I put the pineapple in to start rooting.  I never buy distilled or spring water.  I do good to filter my own drinking water.

It's been 3 weeks and 3 days since I planted my strawberry seeds.  So far, nothing.   I'm giving it up to 8 weeks which will be January 12th.  I found sites that listed 3 different germination times.  1-2 weeks, 2-3 weeks, and 2-8 weeks.  

In the mean time, I obtained a pineapple top and have it growing some roots.  I'll put a blog post about that when I put it in a pot of dirt.  I got my pole connectors for my greenhouse, now I need another set of shelves and another grow light.
