Thursday, April 6 View Page
Finally started my seeds on April 2nd before heading to Iowa for work. Got home yesterday and opened up the bags to find them sprouted! A little mold to deal with on the seed casings. I've made a diluted solution of bleach and gently swabbed the affected areas and placed them back on clean damp paper towels until my potting soil warms up a bit. Hopefully on the 8th I'll have them potted and under the grow lamp. Next step is to build a Bengal-proof container to keep them inside for a while, it's a good 3 weeks before I'll get them in the ground.

Got the sprouted seeds potted on the 8th, the warm weather is helping, bits of green starting to poke through.

The plants shed their seed casings yesterday and took off...

Plants are thriving so far, just a little over a week in the soil at this point.

Growing well, cold rain for a few days keeping them under the grow light in the garage. Have everything ready to build the tunnels, just need to get the damn patch tilled. Wondering how long I can keep them in gallons before they get bound...
