you must have different soil then.  In the sand here they dry out unless 
watered each morning and afternoon.  Once the seedlings are established they 
do alright, but not in the germination stages.  Even with highly amended soil 
it is mostly sand and very dry.  They just never survived into that first set 
of true leaves for me, if they came up at all.  We were lucky if one in ten 
came up.
