These are Cabbage Caraflex and Broccoli DeCicco. Caraflex is coming up in 1 day and deCicco in 2 days:
They're moved out to the Glow Light Area (70Ã‚ÂºF~75Ã‚ÂºF day/55Ã‚Âº~60Ã‚ÂºF night) in the garage and the tray is raised so the seed leaves are 1.5~2" under the lights when they open up.
Until then, the seeds are sprouted in the upstairs Winter Garden (SE window with the insect screen removed. 68Ã‚ÂºF by thermostat, 75~85Ã‚ÂºF when sun is shining). The aluminum take out tray reflector helps boost the light for the sprouts opposite from the supplemental CFL in the student lamp.
These (Romanesco cauliflower Shannon - up in 3 days) will go out to the GLA tonight or tomorrow morning:
Here are some older lettuce Red Sails (started 2/8 ):
BTW -- I'm TOTALLY sold on soil blocks and home made seed starting mix. I don't like the peat pots because I could never properly maintain the moisture level. They're dry out too much, or get too soggy, or get moldy. I tried paper egg cartons but they're giving me the same trouble. Loving the soil blocks. Planted a batch of lettuce in soil blocks on 3/1. Will post pics when they're photo-worthy.
(They're JUST starting to sprout -- mostly root hairs and unshed seed husks)
