It’s been a while since I have posted an update on the seedlings. Most of the spring crops have now been planted outside. The remaining seedlings under the lights are tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, and some herbs.
Last weekend, I rearranged the soil blocks in the flats again by plant height so I can adjust the lights appropriately. Some of the peppers and smaller tomatoes were getting a bit shaded out by the taller plants. Also, a few of the tomatoes plants were crammed up into the lights.
The tomato plants have jumped up in growth over the last several weeks. These really needed to be potted up last week when I took these photos. I have potted up some during the week and the remainder will be potted up this weekend:
I had germination issues with the peppers, so they are at different stages of growth. Hopefully they will catch up by the time they are planted into the garden in June. These are two of the largest pepper seedlings, Anaheim:
Seeded last week were charantais and fastbreak melons, sugar baby watermelon, cucumbers, and another batch of cilantro. All but the cilantro have sprouted and have been moved under the lights. I will post more garden updates this weekend.
