Seedling Photo: Seedling Photo 2009   This is a photo of the size of most of the seedlings in my garden in October, 2009.   The seedlings reliably winter over in my garden, and actually can sometimes become a pest to me.   By spring, 2010, they should be nice, and become quite nice-sized once transplanted into your garden.
