Spring 2009 Seed Tray

Nathan and I finished our Spring 2009 Seedling Tray.

This year we are planting peas, beans, zucchini, squash, carrots, and lettuce. The tray has 8 columns and 5 rows. Each column has a different type of vegetable.

The contents are as follows.

Column) Distributor, Type, Variety, Product Year, Seeds per container, Total seeds planted.

1 ) Burpee, Pea, Sugar Snap, 2008, 2 seeds, 10 total.

2 ) American Seed, Pea, Alaska, 2005, 2, 10.

3 ) Burpee, Garden Bean, Provider, 2005, 2, 10.

4 ) Burpee, Garden Been, Kentucky King, 2005, 2, 10.

7 ) Burpee, Carrot, Nantes Half Long, 2006, 6, 30.

8 ) Burpee, Lettuce, Green Ice, 2006, 3, 15.

Total Seeds Planted 105.

After planting the tray we installed a grow light under the work bench. Recommendations on daily lighting with fluorescent tubes are between 14 to 16 hours.

Now lets see how many days it takes for them to germinate and how many of the 105 seeds actually grow!
