These little guys are growing quick. You are looking at flowers, squash, peppers, melons and some lettuces or greens.
Watching the seeds sprout from the ground for the first time as they push aside the soil for the first time is like watching a newborn life and seeing the potential that it holds.
the slower starting seeds which were planted in the rock wool/clay pellet mixture are starting to split and show green.
This shot shows pepper plants which grow very slow -causing us to start them early in the season- start to split and root.
These are squash plants which we are starting in soil and being moved to hydroponic systems within a week at the most. Squash grows quickly and the roots grow amazingly fast.
This is a "Joe Pepper" plant which is a short scrub bush which produces an abundant amount of hot peppers. This plant is growing with a small amount of soil within a peat pot. It sprouted faster than expected -for a pepper plant- and will be moved into the hydroponic system within days.
Melon seeds sprouting amaze me. They swell a bit and then split roots out the side. Being able to watch it soak in rock wool and turn into a food source is neat, to say the least.
This seed sprout is ready to go. How much food will it produce is my question??
