My garden is coming back!

My garden is coming back!

It is gorgeous outside, so when I walked around, I spotted this! Black Violets Our black violets are blooming again!! Also, I was reminiscing last night about my African Violet that I received from my grandmother after she had passed. I once came to this community asking for help because it had grown so wilted and yellow. Here is a picture update after I had gotten it food and changed windows! BEFORE PICS africanviolet africanvioletbefore After pic :-D African Violet After I had cut all the yellow leaves off, it had gotten pretty droopy. I moved it back to it's original room where it first bloomed and it got even more wilted. I was terrified that it may had gotten root rot, so I repotted it and gave it african violet food. It didn't do any good. So I thought that maybe it wasn't getting enough light. I moved it to my bedroom and it has gotten soooo much better! It is making new leaves again! I also noticed my kitten had nibbled on a few of the leaves, but she has stopped doing that. I guess she doesn't particularly care for it (Good!). The plant has been knocked over a few times because the cats like to go up on our dresser and then run around on it before leaping onto our bed. I swear, if I wasn't enough of a danger to this violet myself, the cats could probably finish it off!! And I have a greenhouse question. When I planted my seeds, it told me to plant around 3-4 seeds in a little peat mound and once "all the true leaves appear, cut back all but the strongest seedling". Do I really have to do this? They are all so strong. :( How do I determine the strongest seedling in each set? And do I just take my shears and snip off the other ones? I'll feel awful about it, but if I have to do it, I'll do it. Greenhouse 4-2-10 Greenhouse 4-2-10
