    Early returns on the rock wool are quite pleasing.

    4th and 5th column from the left are French Charentais Melons that I couldn’t even get to germinate last year in potting soil. This is after 4 days.

    I was able to get a lot of my stuff to survive through our "winter" so I've got some serious tomatoes and peppers already ripe. I've noticed bell peppers will always produce way more the 2nd year they are planted. I'd get like 1-2 peppers per plant first year, but ill get like 10 the 2nd year.

    Just found out the house we are buying next week has free locally sourced irrigation included with our hoa. Sounds like everyones sprinkler systems run off of the neighborhood ponds.

    Hoping to order all of my plants on the 24th after we move in.
