Seeds and Seedlings

A Forest of Seedlings

Last weekend I planted 100 soil blocks with 27 different veggies, herbs, and flowers. As of today, 60 of those soil blocks contain at least one new baby seedling!

Even though I have my seedlings set out by a south-facing window, they still seem to be craving more light. You can see in the pictures below that the seedlings are leaning towards the light. I continually rotate the trays 180 degrees when they start to lean too much to one side. I wish I had a source of artificial light for my seedlings. It’s not easy for me to add it to my current set-up, so for now, this will have to do.
