Green for St. Pat's day
Okay, this post is a day late, but not dollar short! :-D
And while there are no shamrocks in the pics, there's GREEN in abundance! Here's what's been started under the lights in the basement and now big enough to come out onto to the deck. A nice lettuce mix and 3 kinds of onions: Red Mars, Yellow Candy and White Bunching. There's green stuff on the deck so YAY it must be spring (well, officially on Friday, but today the weather is better than Friday's will, according to the forecast).
Either way, these hardy spring veggies can take the cold and will now stay outside.
Meanwhile, in case you haven't noticed, I've been posting a lot on my "Plant Propagation" page recently. That's because there's so much to do with my GUL (growing under lights) starts that I haven't had much time to do a proper post for the main page here.
As for my WS containers, I'm expecting sprouts today (how's that for optimism?). It's going into the 60s, sunshine, and other WS on the forum in my zone have posted about sprouts. My stuff should be catching the 'green wave' coming up from zone 6 to my zone 5 deck any minute! I'm going to take my cup of coffee outside and wait for it. :-D
