    Here is the new Jiffy Grolight setup on top of my fridge. I started a flat of 36 cells, 1/2 broccoli, 1/2 cauliflower on top of a heat mat top shelf in the basement, but they were sprouting despite in the dark with no grow light. The setup has a cord with an on/off switch.

    So...going through OLD seed packages, and this package was cheap, so it contains older than the package says (2017), and I see this when I opened it up and poured into the carrot seed jar. Looks a LOT like dill.

    Boy I am NOT a fan anymore of Jiffy Pellets!!! They swell up cockeyed, and my seedlings are either doing great or Dying great in them. Only the sweet peppers in their 72 cell greenhouse (on a heat mat and under a grow light on a 16 hr timer) have done pretty well, as a group. I Think I will go back to a soiless mix, OR, start inside with well composted stall leavings. I have a pile outside from 2017, and I "harvested" a big pot a few weeks ago and have it available. I restarted my tomato seeds in it and They are doing great.
    It is important to me that I do this well bc I am determined to have a good Fall crop of Brussels Sprouts. I have bought and put away about 10 packages of Brussels Sprouts to save until July.
    Any thoughts?
