The New Home Economics

An addition to the seed-starting kit

Leave a comment

I nearly failed in my first seed-starting attempt because I forgot one important thing: it’s a good idea to have a small fan blowing on the seedlings as soon as they get an inch or two tall.  That simulates the outdoor environment a little better and helps them to develop nice strong stalks and not get too spindly.

Mine were WAY spindly and the fan took out a few of them; they may not recover.  But some of them, after looking horrible for a couple days, actually look better than ever now.  Time to get these babies out in the garden as soon as it warms up.  What’s that I hear?  Snow in the forecast again?
