Instead of waiting for spring, I planted some lettuce seeds right after I got home from holiday travels – I think it was Jan 5. Little lettuce plants are now growing fast under the lights.
Well if the weather stays so far above normal like it has, then you should be able to plant in not too long.
When do you plan to plant these outside?Lisa
My plan was to grow them to full size indoors. Harvest and eat them as I thin the plants. But with this warm weather, maybe I will try putting a few in my cold frame. It regularly gets up to the 50's midday in the sun now inside the cold frame. I have some lettuce and spinach in there from last fall but haven't checked on it recently. I will have to take a look soon.
Very nice. I totally understand. Anything growing is a good thing.
Brilliant, that looks like the beginnings of an over-winter hydroponic experiment to keep those veggies coming!Enjoy.Marian (LondonUK)

great idea, this weekend I am going to try and find time to build a plant incubator with styrofoam insulation panels and a set of shelves. This winter has been so mild that I am wanting to start the tiller.
I couldn't wait any longer! Started our spring garden today. Hoping Atlanta doesn't have any sudden cold snaps. Looking forward to seeing your spring garden!
Kathy,What kind of shelving units did you buy? I am finally going to upgrade this year. I am debating between ones that are 5 shelves and only 19 inches long X 27 inches wide and 4 shelves that are 25 inches long X 17 inches wide… Any thoughts or recommendations?
Going to try sowing seeds. What kind of grow lights do you use? Can you tell me about how much they cost? Do the grow lights use a lot of electricity? Thank you.
