After pondering for a couple of days it was time to give something a try I have had on my mind.
For us it is far from seed planting time but in good spirit of the challenge hey why not just for fun.
First off I built a box from scrap styrofoam board. An auxiliary light not being used serves as a perfect light source using a 100 watt cfl bulb. (The curly type)
Then I used a piece of 100% cotton cord and inserted a yellow bell pepper seed, green bell pepper seed and a yellow pear tomato seed inside with a small speck of tue seed showing.
It may not work out as planned but my thoughts were the water would wick up the cord and germinate the seeds for a sprouting good time. Then when it comes time to plant just lay the string in a trench and cover with soil.
All the light is on an 18 hr timer and a thermometer is in place to monitor the inside temp.
