New Seed Starting Tray

We stopped in at Far North Garden Supply in Wasilla today to pick up some seedling flat inserts for potting the flower seedlings we have started. I found a seed starting tray that was similar to the Bio Dome system we have been using. This tray also uses a foam grow plug so I decided to give it a try and see how it compares.

 We decided to start broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and cabbage in the new tray system. The tray did not come with a clear germination dome and the clerk said they did not advise using one - but I had decided to use one to help keep the seeds moist. I will take it off when the seedlings are up.

The tomato plants are doing great in their 4" pots and it was necessary to raise the light fixtures today. They are looking very sturdy without any leggy growth. I believe it is from adding another light fixture to each shelf and buying all new bulbs.
