Hi! Really looking forward to hanging around on this site. I’ve already done a lot of helpful reading.
I’m up here in the PNW. My hobbies are watching wildlife (salmon, deer, raccoons, squirrels, etc.), gardening (veggies, shrubs, flowers - both annuals & perennials), reading, and more. My career is library based, but I lost my job due to Covid. So, now, I garden. A lot. I have over 90 tomato plants alone - really, tomato plants …
Because of my newfound time, I’ve really gotten into it and have started a small grow room, with shelving, lights and heating mats. I remembered that I had a whole bunch of old beans and am on my second round of trying to germinate them. The first batch (white paper towel pics) didn’t take, but I threw them into medium anyway, just to see. The second batch seems to be taking (brown paper pics). I started both in a shot glass of water. I added a few drops of hydrogen peroxide the second time. Then I moved them to the paper towel era. Some have sorta germinated but don’t seem to be more than a tiny white blob on the end.
Tomorrow I plan to get some good soil and move the germinated seeds into seedling trays with the soil, all on a heating pad. I’ll add lights when I see green.
Anyway, that’s me … there’s more, but I’ll leave it at that for now.
