  2. Everything looks great… A word of caution. I have read in a few places
    online that using the bulbs in a vertical position in a grow box situation
    can be a fire hazard. Last year I did it vertically and didn’t have any
    issues but I have since changed my ways and have made all my bulbs work
    horizontally. I actually use a old cardboard box with the mylar blanket
    glued into the box and 2 200W equiv 6500k CFL bulbs powered by a tee
    socket. I wish I had more room to pre-plant more. 

  3. a bit of feed back when you move those wires by the foil :) nice set up
    thanks for sharing.

  4. Wow 45 tomatoes, and I thought I got carried away this year. Looking good!

  5. Can’t believe I missed the grow box videos earlier…glad I got another
    chance to check them out. BTW, I hope you’ve got a good food bank or
    charity nearby, because with your success growing tomatoes, you’re going to
    have to find a place to *give* them away! LOL

  6. nice video, thanks
    I’ve also got the cheapo mylar film around my lights and I wonder if it
    helps all that much given the loss in air flow, probably is given the
    nominal few extra photons help the plants more than a lack of moving air

    Well i think we are both ready for spring my friend its been down right
    cold and below freezing at night.I may show you how big my plants
    are.Tomatoes easily over a foot tall plus 2 inches.Question? Do you think i
    could set out my cabbage with lows at night of like 33 38 35 and so.I would
    cover them on nights i think it could frost cabbage and
    broccoli,cauliflower are all cool weather plants but my question is it too
    cold yet?Even covered if it goes below 32 I feel scared it mite harm them
    not sure?I got some good covers old empty oat boxes to cover them.Video
    coming of my plants.Excelent video I love the lettuce I would not thin it
    unless it gets pale cause too tick and blocks the light just my thoughts !!

    Everything is looking good my friend

  10. The larger lettuce are almost big enough to start transplanting. I like to
    transplant them when they have 3 sets of leaves. I always start my lettuce
    in a very similar method. Never tried the radishes that way tho’.

  11. I grew the leaf lettuce.. i never thinned it out. It didnt seem to hurt at
    all either. I have a query for you. Im in Benton. How do you revitalize
    your boxes before planting for the year? I dont have any compost where i
    live. Id appriciate any ideas!

  12. Nice

  13. Looking Good! I like the grow boxes. Neat idea:)…..ann

  16. Great video! I would let the lettuce get a little bigger before I thin it
    out, and use it in a salad!
