Can you tell what this is? Any ideas? Here, try looking closer.
That nasty blob of chunky, hideous, mushroomy grossness is my first attempt at growing a SCOBY. And it is absolutely lovely! I thought it was contaminated for a short while- but it turns out it was just bubbly. It is now lovely and thick and ready to be used in my first real batch. YUM!
I thought I was being so smart and crafty when I made markers for the seeds that I planted a few weeks ago. I somehow failed to take into consideration the fact that I was using wooden skewers and an ink pen on paper. Huge surprise- all of my tags ran. So now I have no idea how much of what I planted and in what containers. The alternate good news is that most of my seeds have already come up- if only I knew what they are!
I made a tiny little makeshift greenhouse out of a plastic storage container and plastic wrap. I've only watered twice and the humidity level has been great. I mentioned before that I'm using my SAD light as a grow light, and it seems to be doing the trick. I had seeds coming up after 3 days.
