Seed pellets, with the few survivors. Stay strong!

Well, about three weeks in my Gardening for Dummies escapades and I've already had a slight setback. Apparently, I was too eager and thought that I could ensure growth by burrowing the seeds down as far as possible in my soil pellets (and proceeding to drown them in water). What can I say, I was really nervous during my first major project to impress you CoHorts and I didn't want to let anyone down (ha,ha). I started to become doubtful when I realized the majority of my seedlings did not begin to emerge as time went on. Regardless, I yielded around a mere 5 sprouts from fallen and lucky seeds that did not quite make it into my deepened holes of darkness. So today, I started fresh and basically dusted the top of the pellets with 2-3 seeds instead of smothering them. I knew I would somehow have problems, but I didn't think it would be this early in the road! I know I can do this CoHorts, I just need your support!
