I did a bunch of transplanting of my seedlings today. Basil and chives were pricked out from a tray and the pepper were potted up from Jiffy peat pods.
The artichoke seedlings are coming along nicely too.
I potted up a few more tomatoes as well. I started some more Sub-Arctic as my first batch had really low germination rates (only around 25%) This batch did as well but between them I’ve gotten what I want. I also started a few Yellow pear tomatoes. I started all of them in peat pods and then potted them up after the 1st set of true leaves appeared. A few didn’t have their true leaves but I went ahead and put all of them in larger pots. The plants on the left are newly potted up at 12 days from seeding. The ones on the right were potted up about 2 weeks ago and are 25 days from seeding.
They’re doing pretty well. I noticed a few of the older plants have a bit of yellowing on the leaves. I may be watering too much. I’ll have to make sure they dry out well before I water them again. They’re not getting too leggy, unlike the 3 below. I was out of room below the brighter lights so I moved some of my surplus out and under just a small grow light (that is mounted higher than is ideal). I have plenty of this variety so I figured if they don’t do well it’s not much of a loss. I’m not sure I’ll have room to plant them anyway. The difference in how leggy the seedlings are is pretty dramatic.
I also started some garlic chives, dill, and beets. I’m not sure I can start much more inside. I’m pretty much out of room under the lights.
