correction the 808 I started on the 11th. That one I didn't sand the edges of the seed. So a few extra days that's not to bad. I did soak them all for about 12 hours.

NE Wisconsin

How big are these plants now? I hope you got less snow down there than what my area got, but still looking like an extremely late spring.

Hi wildcat. I lost one due to the furnace running out of fuel. Good thing there my own seeds lol but it was getting big. And I stated over a couple weeks ago and just transferred the new girls into 5 gal grow bags. Soil temp in the green house is 66 degrees as of yesterday. So the new ones should be heading outside in a few days. Stumps are about the size of a nickel and they have leaves almost the size of a piece of 8x11 notebook paper. Giving them a light dose of calcium nitrate today. Thank god for good grow lights. I turned the spare bedroom into a grow lab lol.
