United States Edition


Sunday, 27 Mar 11 Sunny 3°C / 38°F

It took about one week for borage, sweet pea, basil, leek, and nasturiums to sprout. It was a few days quicker for the picking cucs. It is relatively warm in the basement and I have been watering by putting water in the trays and letting it get soaked up. Lights stay on for about 16 hours/day.
