Sprouts!

Some of my seeds are sprouting! The most exciting of which is my cilantro:

The other seeds that are sprouting are, I believe, brussels sprouts! I planted way too many for this small of a pot so I will have to repot when they get a little bigger but I'm very pleased to see them sprouting!

We also put up our new canopy this weekend. It's 8' x 8' and I have an 8x5 plastic rug that will go in it but we're trying to decide on whether to put something solid down under the rug. We were considering getting some of these resin patio pavers, but it's looking like it will end up being very expensive, even if it's just under the rug. We also considered just putting plywood down or even pea gravel... We're not sure but we don't want to be mowing inside the canopy. Ideas?

We - well Jerry grew Brussels sprouts in our old flat, but we ended up moving out early and before harvest time. I wonder if the new residents even knew what it was when it was grown ? :)
