Fungus Update

So we lost the battle with the fungus.

BUT – I have planted new seedlings using the beautiful soil with compost from our yard, not those little peat plugs, and peat pots for easy transplanting. They seem to be thriving, cross fingers!

I planted More Kentucky Wonder Beans, Asian Foot Long Beans, Turnips, Radishes, Beefsteak Tomatoes, Oxheart Tomatoes, Black Krims, Round Zucchini, Peas and Corn. From the first batch a Beefsteak Tomato and a Banana Pepper survived along with one of the Butternut Squashes.

In the germination tank I have: Spaghetti Squash that is popping, Black Beauty Zucchini, Cucumbers, Balck Beauty Eggplants, Butternut Squash, Brandywine Tomatoes, Roma Tomaotes, Banana Peppers, Beets, and Yellow Peppers

The best part is that as soon as a seedling emerges I cut the pot out of the set and put it under the florescent lights to get it ready for planting in mid-May.
