As soon as I transplanted into the bigger pots I put them out side in heated green house, this is on April 28th. The plan was to plant in garden on Saturday April 4th but we got a couple real nice days and it was supposed to rain all day Saturday so I planted three huts on Wednesday may 1st and the last three huts on Thursday may 2nd. Before planting I added cal nitrate and merit to the soil inside the huts.

One of the 2112 Skinner plants had Funny looking leaf when I planted it Wednesday , I looked today and the other one looks the same way, looks like a virus. I culled it and went with a 1937 Werner back up plant. The other 2112 looks fine, Iím really looking forward to growing the 2112 plant again, a very under rated seed.
