nothing after 14 days in the worm farm

Just some pictures of the larger, transplanted oak seedlings, a germinating acorn, showing how much earlier the root or radicle emerges than the shoot, and an update on what is happening with germination in the worm farm after a fortnight which is contrary to popular opinion... zilch, and the other pots planted on 15th and 21st April... zilch... oh no, correction, one tiny emergent ! Giving so far out of 20 acorns, 5 germinations... a 25% germination rate and counting.
