Apr 28 Update


Weather is still unseasonably cold in Yellowknife. Lows dropping into the teens and below. Looks like the weather is going to change by mid week. Might be able to plant some stuff outside (peas, lettuce) by next weekend.
Planted basil and some vines this weekend, under lights.
Had to plant more lettuce as my original planting didn’t pan out. The soil was way to wet. I didn’t dampened soil in another container first; instead I just kept pouring water over the soil until it was wet enough to put seeds in. This is not a good idea in general – which I stated to my spouse as I did it anyway…hmmmm. Way too much moisture, and the basement is rather cool. The result was moss! Sprinkled some cinnamon on it to help counteract the moss and mold and brought it upstairs. Might salvage a few plants.

Tomatoes are doing well, though.

Bad start
