After the initial excitement of our onions sprouting about ten seconds after we planted them, and then the tomatoes following about fifteen seconds after that, we went through a bit of a lull with our seedlings.

And a little closer:
Those tomato seedlings are totally planning to beat up the Nardello seedlings.
