On 3/3 I started celeriac and three varieties of tomato. The seed starting spot that I created is in our dining room and it’s basically just a plastic utility shelf. I took one grow light and removed the legs and suspended it over the starts using bungie cord. In the picture below you can see the second grow light which is just a $12 fluorescent light with a plug and an on/off switch. I replaced the normal fluorescent bulb with a more grow-friendly aquarium light. Both lights are normally lower, but I pulled them up for the picture.
The seeds on top are those that I started on 3/3. They’re leggy. Bummer. But I’ll just bury the tomatoes up their leggy stems when I transplant. Tomatoes can grow roots from any point of their stem.. helps eliminate this leggy problem.
The seeds on the second shelf are mostly greens. They seem to be doing well, but the broccoli is getting leggy. We’ll see.
