This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees, berry bushes, chickens, and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

I have the exact same shelve for starting my seedlings indoors. It works well, but I don't have my setup great for adjusting height.

WOW! They are growing very well. When are you planning to transplant them? Can you share some images on the updates on how it is growing. It's also a good idea to purchase a timer. While the length of your "on" and "off" cycles doesn't matter to most vegetables, allowing the simulated daylength to change from day to day can cause problems.

Hi Kathy: Your lighting system looks cool. Went to Amazon, saw the Hydrofarm 4' Start Light system.

Is this system the same as yours? Do you like it?

I'm pre-spouting sugar snaps, hope to jump start the growth process. They germinate faster in warm soil, but grow better in cool temps. Our pea season is usually painfully short.

Take care,

Happy planting!
