Winter Sowing Experiment’s First Sprouts

I’d felt a bit dejected over the fact that none of my little greenhouses had shown signs of life.  So, today I decided to move them to a more exposed area with more sunlight.  As I was doing this I noticed green. I thought, “Could it be?”.  Sure enough one little flat of all the ones I planted has sprouted.  Want to know the kicker?  I don’t know what the heck it is.  No, not because I didn’t label it.  I most certainly did label it.  The seeds, when I received them, were marked ‘UNKNOWN VEGGIE’.  Can you believe it?  I finally have a sign of success and I don’t know if the plant is broccoli, cauliflower or chard!  It’ll be fun figuring it out I guess.
