Plants in an Early Stage (As Seedlings)

We all have seen vegetables and flowers in their mature form. To help understand the growing process, here are photos of seedlings of three plants a week after emerging from the ground.

All are about an inch tall and wide, and will take 45 to 70 days to reach maturity. From top to bottom: sunflower, red mizuna (an Asian green) and spinach. (Click on photos for more detail.)
