These seedlings were previously sewn in with a rosemary companion plant.
They came out in a matt created with the rosemary's surface roots in peat,
They were just sewn into the border of a rosemary plant that had recently been potted up.
After they germinated, I started spray-injecting the sides of the pot about 4 inches below soil level, and watering the rosemary slowly and sparsely in the middle of the pot so as not to get any water on the seedlings stems at soil level.
When i transplanted these, they came out in a pieces of a big round, with few tap roots and little to no transplant shock evident.
I think they had formed complex shallow root system with the rosemary's new roots seeking water at the surface.
They've been separated in 34 cups for about 6 days.
Some individuals, but a lot of multiples per cup too.
They look like they're doing ok and growing without any noticeable interruption.

The last ones pictured, the transplants i just now pricked out by loosening the soil with a stick, prying around roots and lifting by grabbing the stem and shaking lightly.
I had bottom-watered them yesterday. So, they were still moist.
Some good roots. I think they'll all be succesful.
I watered in the soil and packed some dry on top.

These are two groups I planted out directly, without first transplanting each to its own container.

Transplanted the 10 from the small green pot.
Was able to tip out the entire soil mass like a typical transplant.
Good roots, all to the bottom of the pot, good time to transplant.
Rotate and pat the sides lightly to loosen the roots from the soil.
I start extracting the outer seedlings.
Resting the soilmass in a larger pot full of soil,
holding the stem below the cotyledon
and teasing out roots about 6" long on all plants.

Be careful you don't get lost in that jungle, there.  Plants look great; so lush!

You are entering the buttocks with the spicy hand of Chinese pepper? And pleasure from this low pepper? I am not sure but the scorpion pepper musk when raw, is the sexual experience. This is granted, and evident in the taste, and the woman jealous.

Thanks bicycle. Ya, that section is like a thicket.

I added a new row: just 2 cu ft peat and 2 cups oyster shell flour tilled into the sand.
Some straight peat on top. I'll add granular fertilizer at plant out.
I'm waiting a few weeks to transplant new rounds of starts.
