We started this bunch of seeds back on October 27th, then put them in the buckets on November 21st, the day before Thanksgiving!  These plants have really taken off in the last few weeks, and this week the flowers started to open up, at first just one or two were open but now we have most of the plants have at least one open flower if not two.
