Nothing in the basement right now but I do have some morning glory seedlings, moonvines and daturas on the heated table in the greenhouse. Do they count? They won't go in the shady gardens, they will be out in full sun, tho. With no hostas for companions.

I agree with the law suit of this couple, you have to stand up for your civil rights, that's why we had to fight the British more than 200 years ago, and we got that wonderful Constitution with its amendments.

Police is not the smartest in making individual decisions, so (I grow more than 50 hosta seedlings) when you grow things in the basement under 24 hrs light, make sure curtains are drawn.

Then where do you grow your nuts, Babka? ;)

(Love the dryer lint and mold.)

I grow the occasional mouse.

My tomato seeds have started to sprout. Still waiting for jalapeno peppers to do the same.

I have 70 hosta seedlings, 4 dahlias sprouted and have taken my first coleus cuttings. They are not in the basement; they are all over the house. I also have a very patient and tolerant husband.

About 300 Hosta seedlings which I need to get down to 100. 32 seedlings of Dusty Miller, and 60 seedlings of Petunia Purple Wave. The Zinnias and Tomato seedlings start next week and the week after.

Oh and the H. Mirror Mirror in a pot which decided to wake up early in my garage.

Here's one of the keepers.

STEVE-
What do you mean you have to get them down to 100? Throw out 200 seedlings?? Yikes. Seems like a waste. Will there actually be 200 that aren't up to the quality they need to be? Couldn't you use them anyway? Pot 'em all up and sell the scrawny ones on your driveway?

I too, do not have a basement. And I also loved the 'mold and lint ' posts. But I got an order from Bluestone and they are sitting in the sun coming through my south side sliding doors, sort of acclimating!

Hostanista- I will refrain from answering. ;-D

Steve- If you need to test that one for vigor in a warmer climate, I'll volunteer.

I noticed years ago, the more shelves you put up in the basement, the more bins of junk you grow in the shelves and in front.
