This week just got warmer (mid 60's and some 70's) and the other side is now starting to take off. I have lost maybe 5 so far that I pulled and will replant this weekend. I am adding some root stuff (will have to post the name later) and some peroxide to help keep things clean and oxygenated. This is the first time for me using perlite and it is some weird stuff but the plants seem to like it. Now if I can just keep the chickens away from them it will be all good.
