Just rigged my new seed starting setup for the year today. First pansy seeds have germinated.
The new rig features a new T8 shoplight, much like the last one. But the chains were too short/badly positioned to hang directly from the shelf anymore. Hence the classy new plank of wood.
My old T8 shoplight was kind of sparking at one end, so I retired it last year. I have this bad-karma thing going with buying electronics at Walmart. If it needs a plug, it goes bad. Your mileage may vary...
So far I've only planted pansies and early indoor/outdoor peppers. The peppers are upstairs until they germinate, because it's warmer up there. Attachments discussed in a forum topic.
