Grow Light System Success!

After six weeks, we have had a great turnout on our seedlings. Every couple weeks, I raise a chain link to give the plants more space. You can see the different levels that accommodate the varying heights. The only thing I don't like is that I can't water without moving all the trays out from under the lights. And I'm seriously running out of room. Fifty tomato and pepper plants take up a lot of space, and most of them are still in their cell packs!

I potted up the tomatoes last week using 4-inch nursery pots I just knew I would have a need for someday. They've been cluttering our shed for half a decade, but I didn't want to trash them and I had too few and from too many places to begin to know where to return them. I am redeemed! I am not a hoarder!

I'm considering taking a risk with this summer-like weather we've been having and putting some in the ground.  The 10-day forecast looks good!

  1. They look so beautiful! Way to go growing all those fabulous plants from seed. Grow lights really are the bomb-diggity aren't they? This early summer-like spring has definitely got things in the ground so much earlier!
