Seed Sowing Experiment Part 2

Several weeks ago I started an experiment where I planted a packet of snap pea seeds in each of several small containers.  The object is to see if they will successfully sprout, be transplantable into the garden box and then thrive enough to produce peas.  Here is a look at the root and plant density of one containers of seeds I sowed.

I was able to gently tease the pea starts apart and plant them in the garden box.

Just to the right of the peas, I planted the lettuce and swiss chard starts I got at the Seattle Tilth sale. The garden box soil was dry four inches down and I'm extremely happy the famous Northwest rains have returned today.
