A series of seedlings (from left to right you see pairs of 2139.4 Skonager, 210 Hochstetler and 927* Jutras). For the 710* Wagler series I had to start another bunch of seeds, the initial set decided to rot rather than producing seedlings (it was a matter of soil temperature, the pots with the 710* seeds did not fit into the incubator during the first couple of days after seed starting).
Currently, itīs too cold and too dark and cloudy, and the development of the seedlings is at least two or three days behind. In the morning I take this box into the greenhouse (slightly more light during those cloudy days, but cold even at daytime) and in the afternoon I take them back into the house near a window (less light, but still temperatures which keep the roots alive). Would have loved to transplant them into the patch this weekend, but soil is too cold. Need to wait for another three or four days.
