I have built a new light stand and will have more details on it next post and will replace the link to the right. I made it out of 1/2" dia. schedule 40 plastic pipe and fittings with plywood tops. It's cool. A few minor modifications and you'll see it.
Started some onion transplants this weekend (reason for the new light stand) and a few flowers just to see something grow. I'll move the onions out into the beds middle of next month then start the major crops for the summer season. Strangely none of the stores had any seed starting mixture so I made some with sphagnum peat moss and perlite.
Worked pretty good. It is about a 9 to 1 mixture, peat moss to perlite. Just mix it good, wet it down and set into you pots, etc. Also got my orders from Territorial Seed Company and Johnny's Seeds AND found a small cashe of seed packets hidden from me.Some tomato, pepper, and cucumber seeds from last year.
Picked another good red cabbage from the garden for supper Sunday evening. Definitely planting these things again.
