I’ve never used grow lights before. And have only had moderate success starting seeds inside. Usually the plants get leggy–way too leggy– and have to be babied along in the garden until they develop a backbone. I have hopes for these but still holding my breath. It’s pretty cold still and although it’s almost March, it’s premature to even begin hardening off. So. We’ll see.
But Saturday, with the help of the Dirt Devas–THIS grew up in the garden. It’s a BIG hugelkultur bed. For winter squash which will also be staked to gain vertical growing space. I’m hoping that 2 months will give it time to settle and percolate a bit.
