Seedling Update

Thursday, 26 Apr 12 Rainy 11°C / 52°F

The tomatoes no longer fit under the grow lights, so my sweetie rigged up one of the lights on sawhorses. I also potted them up and staked them for supports. I’m seriously considering planting them out late next week when the weather warms up and setting them under cloches in case of frost.

Everything is growing like crazy. The cucumbers are huge, and one of the watermelon sprouts is growing it’s first true leaves, too.
