First Peppers, Tomato Races...and Jamie's Jermination Jamboree!
Our first peppers are doing great thanks to Jamie's Jermination Jamboree (the technical name for our new germination chamber).
As H.G. mentioned last week, it's good to keep your seedlings in a germination chamber. We keep ours in the ice house on the farm this time of year because the greenhouse goes down to 55 at night and our "Germination Chamber" is at 70 degrees. Not to mention we set them on a heated mat at 85 degrees for 48 hours. After these first 48 hours, into the greenhouse they go!
Tomatoes -- off to the races!
If you're interested in this kind of thing and want to watch our tomatoes grow follow along on our tomato crop progression page! Good for school assignments for all you kids out there who need a science project idea or extra credit!
