All about the greenhouse ...... growing like a weed☺





I showed a couple pics of the greenhouse
in my last post but this post is all about the plants☺
(And there are lots of pics:~p)
 I started planting seeds on Jan 10th
Jan 17
The broccoli and cauliflower were the first to start coming up.

They all seem to be pretty happy in their hi tech pots
(9 oz dixie cups)☺

Mostly peppers and a few tomatoes

All of the plants are pretty much constantly being moved around
 from tray to tray according to height.
( Think elementary school picture day)
 
I keep the lights just a couple of inches from the top of
the plants at all times.
It keeps them from getting all stringy and lanky
since they don't have to "stretch" to seek out the light.
And I keep a fan going on them, lightly,
about 16 - 18 hours a day.
It helps to strengthen the stems.
( I use that drill up there to make the holes in the bottom of the cups.
Just stack 6-8 of them and drill away)
Feb 11
The last tray is ready to transplant.
These are all flowers.

Tomato Selfie! ☺

The numbers on the cups tell me what variety I have in the cup
All of the seed packets are numbered and grouped in types.
This cup holds Vegetable #11
Way easier than writing the name of the variety on each cup,
I would get writers cramp☺

I will most definitely have to re-pot again before it is time
to put these babies outside.
That blue tote on the ground there has little green onions and leaf lettuce.
I'm hoping for a small salad sometime next month ☺
