I learned a secret today, with the phone call, we were chatting about starting seedlings, and he takes a tray, lines it with newspaper, wets the newspaper, then takes another tray and puts the inserts in it, in order to keep the humidity high.
I was going to fire up the humidifiers, so that trick will help...
I bought lights, and tags yesterday, so I am ready to put lights on my little 24" shelves, but they only hold one tray at a time.
I think I need to back up and look at this, one tree at a time, and not see the whole forest!
I transplanted little tomatoes today, they are barely starting to get true leaves. I like to do it while the roots are small and not so tangled up.
Are tomatoes tougher than cole crops? I broke or severely bent 1/3 of the cole crops... and not one tomato.
The tomatoes were only on the dining room table facing a north window, no lights on them at all. The cole crops had lights, but still got leggy.
Okay, which is easier, to raise the seedlings to the light, or lower the lights to the seedlings? I thought maybe dog chains and cup hooks for the lowering mechanism on the lights. And various shelf heights are another idea... Just move the tray to a taller shelf... which would be easier?
