the tomatoes, peppers and eggplants are growing the best they ever have under the growlights. not sure why they are doing so well, but hey! there it is.
I will be transplanting to individual pots and putting them out in the greenhouse this weekend. I will also start some lettuces, kale and flower flats.

I bought another 4 ft. growlight this season, it has 4 lights instead of 2, so I can get more flats started earlier. Right now, I have to stagger my starting times and really crowd the flats.

here it is! Sunblaze High Output T5 Lights

Thanks Jrzy, probably better off not using the phone. I can picture it covered in dirt already. Looking forward to growing soon {#Daisy}

We're gonna try to grow ginger, indoors. Anyone have experiences to share?

 
I have a friend who is an organic farmer; she's growing some ginger indoors.  I think she ordered it from someone in Hawaii.  I'll ask her for advice the next time I see her.

I tried some outdoors in a pot and it was a dismal failure but I'm not much of a gardener.

Doing a big backyard remodel and there's a corner that gets no traffic, but lots of sun.

Right now I have two 4'x4' gardens percolating along, but my wife realized how much she loved getting produce from there and agreed with me to expand.
So, I just got the parts to make two 4' x 16' x 1' raised beds.

I guess I also need to start looking for the right dirt to fill em with. (The native dirt has far too much clay)

I shelved my plans for Aquaponics, since I didn't want to be tied to home to feed the fish - although there are automated systems. Maybe I'll try it later.
