Oh, the plants look great
Thanks. I just measured the flue tiles, and they are a weird size (34 inches tall), close enough to 3'

Attached is my harvest I probably should have waited, but the lack of sunlight was killing me

Best,

Not really a lot. Herbs were successful, and so were lettuce, jalapeno peppers, and some tomatoes.

I am buying a new house in a week or so, so hopefully more sunlight is on the way.

Best,

I just pulled up some potatoes whose leaves were yellow with small brown spots, because the other ones didn't have it. I think they were getting a fungal disease. I tried to plant them last fall and they came up fine in early March. I should have tried to spray something. The plants had not flowered, and I am sure could have made more potatoes. I only got a small bucket from 4 plants and several were very small. When I read about the diseases, I didn't want them to effect the potatoes themselves.
