Spring, please!

Spring, please!

Last year my seedlings grew long and leggy. I realized it was a lighting problem and made lights to deal with it. This year I moved things to make it better for the seedlings-- and more difficult for me. Last year I had easy access and a full table. Photobucket Note the table's relationship to the windows and the sad excuse for lights. This year I have to do some maneuvering to get full access to the whole table. However, I think the better lighting will make up for the extra shimmying, re-arrainging, lifting and turning I have to do to reach the plants. New Lighting Config Notice also I did not plant every seed I plan to grow right away like I did last year. This is because impatient and stubborn is now way to garden. There are only peppers germinating this February. Here they are-- labeled even! Seedlings soon BUT-- just because impatient and stubborn is baaaaad, that does not mean that I have gotten any more patience or reduced the thickness of my skull. I could not control myself when I got my supplies in January. Still, I should a little restraint and only put 3 seeds down. Two germinated. I call this picture: HURRY UP, SPRING!!!! Spring soon, please
