Actually at day5 the Young leaves came out though not all.
the spec planted is darina mix. having experimented with the local seedling in my 7sacks.i think this darina is awesome.

sorry for replying late due to my schedule. yes i made a hole at the base of the sacks about 2.5inches.to help reduce excess water in the sack especially when it rained.

you can do sack farming without owning a land if u have a space in ur house,where you can place and arrange the sack.no mata how small.
for the soil,check around your environment and see if you can spot any good garden soil or black soil.if u can't,then check people that owns flower garden for comercial.some do buy good soil for planting.ask them how you can get one.
for manure, i use poultry dungs to counter some treads here.where they complained of not comfortable with poultry dungs. I used three weeks old poultry dungs.also check around your environment to see if u can get one or two bags.
