Germinated in October 2012, so 6 months. I took a lot of the seedlings outside today.

I've usually waited until January or February to start my seedlings. Might have to rethink that. You's is doing really well.

I've been thinking along the same lines, Ann. I find they're a little too small when I start them in January, so I figure I'll try to get them started some time in November. They seem to do just fine growing indoors under lights for that length of time. The last time I started seedlings late (late February 2011) I waited to plant them out until September and they've done well. They look nice so far this year, too.
