Seeds Sprouting

Had to do something 'spring', so I started some tomato seeds. About 2 weeks ago, I put some seeds in a glass of water. After a week or so, they begin to grow legs. I pick the fastest growing and healthiest sprouts and transfer them to peat pots. This morning, they are breaking the top of the soil.

Had some Russian Iris seeds from a friend in NY that were a few years old, kept in the fridge. Put them in a glass of water a few days ago to see if I could get them to germinate the same way as my tomato seeds.

Anyone else have seeds started?
 
I found a few years ago that if I take the seeds out of a fresh cut tomato and throw them in water, they germinate. So when I was having lunch, I cut saved the seeds from a Campari tomato and did that. After they started germinating, I planted what I wanted and tossed the rest of the seeds in one more peat pot. Looks more like grass seed sprouting. This is all just from one small cocktail tomato.
