Thursday (the corn is really growing now-it's on the second shelf):


Friday (J started more tomato plants)







The experiment using the hatch chili seeds under the Aerogarden light was pretty much a bust.  About 5 or six did sprout so they are planted and in the green house, but we're not sure they will come up.  I ordered some "fresh" seeds and those will get started next week. 

We didn't expect the cucumber and corn to come up so fast, so we're not sure when we'll plant them outside.  If they go out sooner rather than later, the containers are already set up and we'll just need to get something to keep the plants warm in case the temperatures get low (so far the lowest they've been recently is high 40's/lower 50's).
