February 25, 2012 journal

Growing the Giant Marconi indoors is turning out to be one of the easiest projects ever, as these plants need little, if any, manual pollination. Be that as it may, I may have to remove some of the fruit, as I doubt that the plant can support all of the fruit that has set.

Today I started Tropic and Trust tomato seeds for the greenhouse. The Dahlia seeds for the annual garden have germinated and the pepper seeds for the garden are beginning to germinate.

The cucumbers in the ebb and flow system are sending out male flowers and are responding nicely to a higher EC of 1.9. I am finding that daily monitoring of the pH and maintaining the level at 5.6 is critical to their overall health.
