Seeds started this morning. Tilling this afternoon when the soil is the warmest. Adding a ton of peat moss, gypsum and perlite. I'll do one more till tomorrow and as hoop house.

Finished the third till, Hoop is 90% done, Cables are in. I'm sore and tired but feel good about the patch prep.

All seeds germinated, the most aggressive root came out of the 1824 Shazzy 16'. These will go against the 1317 and the 2145 for top spot in both patches. I hope to have two personal best in both patches.

Doing good so far. Patch is ready. Cables are warming the soil and hoop houses are killing the corn seed maggot flies.

Plants are getting some natural sun light. I have been doing this on the overcast days and small time periods on sunny days. The 1824 and 2145 are looking the strongest so far.
