Scooty,
Yes, these seeds produced way more than expected. I still use U.H. lettuce and now cauilflower. As it turns out my fox farms will be hard to get. I'm trying Aurora Soul now, but it's back to learning again. I expect to use this quart and go from there. Big Cheef is still the front runner and Everglades is "not dead" just a note is that for Hawaii summer is brutal. More so than other places. It is about shade and plenty of water.
Aloha & Thanks for sharing.
Tom

Default Big changes

Aloha,
I decided to change or try a new liquid nutrient. Well, hands down we have a winner. My new one is Aurora innovations "Soul ". I will let you decide, which is better. Both pix are Big Cheef, started on the same day. The smaller one sprouted 2 days earlier that the other. I am waiting to see the outcome. But more seeds are definitely going to be grown.
Aloha

Tom - Good luck on your season!
Dave,
Thanks for you kindness.
Things are moving along. I did post pictures, of the Big Cheef. Also, the everglades are coming along slowly.
The Japanese Oxhearts are doing well in N.Y. catskills. The russian orange is the standout. It's beating a long established Mortage lifter & Amish paste.
Thanks to all the dedication of all the people here on Tomatoville.
Mahalo,
Tomm

Default Go Big or sit on the porch...

Aloha,
I posted before, but I did run some water . No runs, no drips no errors. As far as I know.
But all is good for my new rail system. Yes, here we go. The new nutrients look very promising. And the next step is fill up the holes.
Stay tuned.
Aloha

I am very curious too. It looks like a really good setup.

Default Big Cheef

Aloha,
A quick update on Big Cheef. Good progress so far. I will put in a container or growbag. Still a no decision.
Have a great day.

Default Potato leaf cheef ?

Aloha,
The 1st Big Cheef to sprout 6 weeks ago was transplanted last week into a growbag. This week it already has a flower. This one is in a serious hurry.

Aloha,
I've been busy at work and haven't paid much attention to my lettuce and seedlings. But it seems to be in great working order. Now on to potting my Daiso green peppers. And the Mat Su Express !!!
Chee Hooo,
Tom
