I must be truly evil - four more parsleys were up this morning. No rosemary yet, so perhaps Larry is right.

Started the big guys on EarthJuice "Grow" today, 1 Tbsp. per gallon. This stuff is basically liquid compost, and it seems to settle out of the water pretty readily, so I'm going to keep it in the mixing jug and give it a good shake before each watering.

The little guys are still getting unfortified water until they have significant foliage.

The broccoli is leggy. I remember this being the case in years past, too. It amazes me that it can start out so floppy and end up growing what amounts to a small tree trunk by midseason. Oddly I didn't check the maturity time of this one and got a 120-day variety. With the head start we're getting, this will be fine.

Everything else is looking great. Of the little guys, only the rosemary, 2 thai basil, and 1 sage haven't come up. No more mishaps with temperature thus far, and I think we're pretty safe from those now that I've stabilized the height of the lamps and am no longer covering the trays.

I have also increased the fan speed to "medium".

The German Pink tomatoes are a "potato leaf" variety. I've never grown these before; they certainly are distinctive!
