Got Peppers

All of the garden seeds are planted and all of the heated sand bed is occupied. Next will be the posies which I dislike planting because they are so tiny. They are like dust and you cannot plant just one.

About 15 peppers stuck there heads out this morning and when they are all sprouted and develop there second set of leaves, they will be moved to the greenhouse. They have been under the humidity domes for 10 days and you can see they are still very damp.

For seedlings, I like using misters. They do not beat the seedlings down and each mister cover’s app. 24”dia. I have a mister every 12” of shelf length so the coverage overlaps and insured good coverage. After about 2-3 weeks in the greenhouse, I will transplant them in to 4” pots.

  3. John,

    Wow! This is what I need- for when I actually start seeds in my greenhouse. Most of the time I start them indoors under lights- but when it’s time or safe to put them in the greenhouse, this would be terrific. Space is limited in my little 6×10. So, what brand of mister is it? Where did you purchase them?

  5. Wow, you have misters in your greenhouse, great! I wish I had room for a greenhouse. I’m assuming that’s your GH, not your seed starting area.

  6. Sinfonian, yea I have had a hobby GH for 30+ years and add little things as I go. That is how you turn around one day and you have an automated GH and your an old fart.
