My seedlings are coming along pretty good. I think I started them too soon but I hope to have nice big plants by the time I am ready to set them out. My impatiens didn’t come up at all. I guess that is what I get from buying them from a big box store.
My marigolds aren’t coming up very good either. I saved seed from last years and I know they won’t come back true to the ones from last year. I just wanted to save money from buying the six packs. I am going to give it one more tries and if that doesn’t produce results out the seeds go and I will be buying marigolds.
I am also having problems with my baisl. It looks like the bulbs are burning the leaves. I have never seen anything like that before. I need to move the light up some to see if that helps. This next week is our garden club meeting and if I have some basil that looks good I am going to take some of the plants there to give them away. I don't need basil plants. I could make lots of pesto that way?!?
I went out last weekend and bought somemore light fixtures and bulbs. One per shelf just didn't seem like enough light. The poor little plants on the ends were stretching to get some light. I'd really like to get another shelving unit with more lights but that will have to wait until next year.
