Spring Waning Moon of Winds
The United States themselves are essentially the greatest poem. – Walt Whitman
Business meeting and plants this morning. The business meeting went just fine, our financial management continues to work for us and not against us. Wish I could say the same for the financial markets. Sigh. Decided to check. Wish granted: Dow Leaps 497 Points on Treasury Plan. Yeah.
My seedlings, grown over the last couple of weeks, sprouted roots which is the time to move them to their next medium, in this case soil in peat and coconut fiber pots with the exception of four chard and one mustard green that I put in lava rock and in the hydroponics. The broccoli, egg plants, onions, leeks, mustard and collard greens, cauliflower and huckelberry now have soil around their sprouting medium. They are all under the lights still. Moving to larger size containers strained my space, though with some jiggering I got them all in new places and still under the lights.
Some of them have to move out soon to make way for the seedlings that need to get started on April 1st and April 15th. Just when they were getting comfortable. Hmmm. I may have problems here. Seems onions started by seed should not go outside until May. This will definitely cramp the April batch of plants.
