A Few Minor Changes

The first change was to the power supplies to the Smart Garden-3s. I'm not going to put up an old photo to contrast and compare. There were two outlet extenders with three plugs and some USB slots. The transformers didn't fit side by side and I used 9" Extension cord to get all five plugged in. Since I had to use an extension cord anyway, I thought...

The power strip works every bit as well. Better. It's the same power on the outlet - 8 watts each, for 40 watts - and is not a significant load, and looks less unattractive than the fiasco in the other photos.

Ranch One is busting out in blossoms that I have to pollinate by hand. I love when that happens.

Remember Sheba? I had planted a single Heirloom Cherry Tomato seed pod in the center, dedicating Sheba to tomatoes. When that pod was slow to germinate, I planted a second pod, a Golden Harvest Tomato pod. That pod has germinated, and I moved it to the center. The Heirloom Cherry Tomato pod is still cowering under its grow dome, off to the side. I hope Golden Harvest tomatoes aren't full-size. I need to investigate.

I had turned off all the gardens earlier. At 01:45, I turned them all on at once. If they all stay on for 16 hours (they won't, but that's part of my experiment), then they'll wink off at or about 17:45. (5:45 PM for non-followers of Universal Time.) I will not the actual times. Seriously, I want them all to come on together. 06:00 (6 AM) would be perfect, but I'm not getting up then to set them.

2022-06-24 - I moved a non-germinating Romaine Lettuce from Seble to Harvey. Harvey has two Red Fire Pepper plants and four (now three) empty pod bays. In its place in Seble, I planted my first-ever spinach seed pod. I also added water to ensure the level was right. Seble is still the only AG Harvest without an AeroVoir. It's almost time to refill Anny.
