An often asked question is when to plant out seedlings. A lot depends on what seedlings want to plant out, such as daytime temps in your garden which may or may not be ideal for the seedlings.
As I already written, I use old egg cartons for starter trays. For many starters. Lettuce does very well in egg cartons. And a week ago I started planting out my egg carton lettuce.
October planted garlic, now under a low tunnel.
My update about my radish and peas during a very cold period in March which I knew was coming. In short, insulation works. See details in the rest of this post.
Grow lights: Getting quick to the point: They work well. I am impressed.
A photo showing about 1/3 of my March seedlings.
So I bought some grow lights.
As simply a preview, this is how some of my starters now appear.
I sow almost all of my plants in trays as starters. Any time of the year. And I also like to reuse things when I can. So for some seeds I reuse egg containers to start the seeds.
