Started 5 long gourd seeds, hoping that at least 4 germinate. I found out that when I move pumpkin seedlings from the 5" peat pit to 1 gallon pots and put them back in the germination box because the other light box is full, they get too close to the CFL lights. They hang down lower and get hotter than the LED's in the other box, But when I move them to the LD box or to the outside hoop, they recover quickly. I guess I had a little too much on my mind. Jacob and I have been getting things ready to plant corn beans radishes, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, potatoes and cabbage. I sprayed out some weeds and some of the rye cover crop. Where we had mustard and rape/radish cover, there were far fewer weeds. Trying to get things ready for Jacob to take over for a while when I start treatment. At least I put the majority of the wok into the patch early so our efforts hopefully will balance out.
