Growing Cilantro, Basil and Chives from Seed

They don't look much like herbs yet....On top of the dryer is a great place to start seeds!  Warm soil temperature makes seeds germinate faster.  These are chives and garlic chives, both covered with vermiculite.  On top of those are 1/2 inch cell trays of basil and tomatoes!  I did not cover the basil and tomatoes, but I probably will today.  I also planted some cilantro seeds - covered in vermiculiteAny kind of heat makes cilantro bolt earlier so I left those in the garage.  They have all been watered until they are soaked.  I'll keep them soaked until I see a sign of life.  Almost everything I need for the kitchen garden is growing!  I'll probably have enough to sell some at the Braselton Antique and Gardening Festival too!  Thanks:www.facebook.com/CaleysCulinaries
