PINE GROVE, PA – On April 30, 2021, members of the Solar Innovations® team transplanted seedlings of 12 different plant varieties that were started in our greenhouse in early March.
These include yellow and red onion, hybrid and paste tomatoes, bell and Italian peppers, red cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, and Brussels sprouts. The plants were transplanted from their 1.5” hexagonal cells into 4” diameter containers to allow for the development of wider root systems. Once mature, they will be transplanted to our outdoor gardens.
Because the stems of these seedlings are still quite delicate, we are using the “tray watering method” for irrigation, which entails filling the bottom of the trays with water, allowing them to soak up only the moisture needed. Not only is this method one of the safest options for young plants, but also requires very little maintenance.
Because of the progression of these seedlings and the projected temperatures in our area, we expect to transplant them outdoors in about 2-3 weeks.
We will continue to provide updates of the growth in our greenhouse and plant cultivation.
