Day 10: Lots of Itty Bitty Basil Plants

Well, it's Day 10. All of the basil plants have successfully grown above the top cover of the seed pod (in some cases, I had to nudge them so they'd pass through the holes). They're all about half an inch now. The Napolitano and Marseille Basil both seem to be "winning".
I did smell a faint odor a few days ago, similar to what you might smell in a greenhouse. My guess is it was the concentrated nutrients being used to feed the plants. Happily, that seems to have dissapated now--if you get one of these, it's a good lesson to put it in a well-ventilated place.
