June 6, 2012 journal

The weather is still not cooperating; it was cool and damp again today with periods of rain. To make up for the last several days of reduced light levels, I moved our flower seedlings indoors and put them in a grow tent.  Additionally, I mixed a batch of nutrients with heavy emphasis on P and K.  

Most of the tomato plants are developing their fourth truss, with small fruit forming on the lower trusses.  At some point soon I will have to clone new plants and top these plants off.

The netting for the cucumbers worked out better than I expected, as it is much better than trying to get them to climb a single strand of twine.  As the plants develop lateral shoots, and begin to wander around, it is an easy matter to redirect the shoots back into the netting to keep them under control.

Can you tell us more about the LEDs? And how you chose what to use?

I believe there are several posts concerning the LEDs and my choices.
