Just in time for Valentine's Day

Today when recharging one of the ebb and flow systems I picked several flowers and placed them in a vase. Needless to say my wife was probably more pleased with receiving the flowers than she would have been with a batch of salad greens.

The zinnias have been discarded, even though they were still producing buds. The plant has been growing since October, and it showed no sign of slowing down. However, it was extremely pot bound, and beginning to take up too much space.

I have noticed that seasonal plants, that normally have a limited cycle when grown outdoors, continue long past their normal cycle when grown indoors, hydroponically, under artificial lighting.
