as promised--koley's xmas seedlings

On Christmas Day we seeded some kale into a new small seedling tray that came with a small heat mat. This was a fun Christmas gift and was meant to supplement the larger heat mat already in use in the greenhouse.  A few years ago my mom purchased a mini indoor greenhouse (lightweight metal shelving with a vinyl cover) and we were hoping that it would help keep things a little warmer for a few plants but it was too small to hold our gutter planters.  This new seedling mat and tray would fit in the mini greenhouse and so on Christmas Day we filled it with planting mix and some kale seeds.  And these are those seeds germinated.

They are still pretty tiny but I have hope that they will grow now that we are keeping it warmer overnight.  Thanks Nikole!!
