I am still working on the ones I canned before i left for Parts Unknown but the supply is dwindling. The cardboard ones in the stores are pathetic. I suppose I should set up a small greenhouse and try that out.
I suppose this might fit here. Found this while fumbling around on the web. Aside from making good whiskey I am more interested in seeing old seed varieties saved and brought back into the fold. We have hybridized ourselves into a corner I think. So much of what is grown borders on flavorless glop now. Refreshing to learn about things like this.
Im looking at getting some better bulbs in the 18 dollar price range.They have like 12 large LEDS that are blue and red,about 17 dollars at Lowes.LED grow lights have come a LONG way in last 5 years,prices have plummeted and quality of light put out is spaceage awesome for giving them just the right stuff and not wasting energy making light they dont use.These bulbs are what I think the hydroponic gardner I know was talking about,need to check with him to be sure.Whats special is output of each LED very strong so permeates thru foliage real well,better than a ton of small LEDS.

As I am not a fan of foot ya ball or any professional sports I spent yesterday with a pointed stick(my apologies to the Germans)and pea seeds/spaghetti squash starts in the garden. It is time. Also popped in some hibiscus and bougainvillaea starts that I had made from cuttings and immersed in rooting acid. I have a few trays of broccoli and cauliflower that may go in a week or so down the road. It is time to get with it regarding the garden down here. Woohoo.
