Report on the seed gemination hack
kathythorne
The wine cooler works really well. I learned that I have to pull the seed trays out as soon as the first seeds germinate. I lost most of the first tray of lettuce to damping off disease, which just loves cool, damp conditions. The second tray worked really well. I'll be putting the transplants in the hoop house today. The cooler also works really well for celery, which needs 70 degree temperatures during the day and 60 degrees at night. I had the best germination ever. Now if I can just figure out what nipped the tops off all the seedlings after I put the celery in the greenhouse. Meanwhile I've moved the seed tray back into the house so the last seedlings to germinate might actually survive.
