Thanks Learner, that's what I was looking at it for. I have one light I can mount at the top and maybe rotate the seed trays so that they all get some.
BTW...ordered online yesterday, should be here by March 30th. A couple days late maybe, but shouldn't be that much of an issue.

This new doomsday pandemic apocalypse must also be changing the earth’s ellipse around the sun if we now need a March 39th this year! :D

New question...
If I order in seed potatoes, how long will they last before planting?

Long enough, I wouldn't worry about it, though I wouldn't want to order them when they could be sent while they might be exposed to freezing temps.

I have potatoes from last Oct that I will be using as seed potatoes this year. In fact I will be starting them indoors Monday. Potatoes are my favorite food . I once went into a restaraunt and ordered Fries, mashed potatoes, and baked ones. Nothing else, true story. I was so disappointed with C5, I think it was one of his first posts where he was in Peru of all places, the very home of the potato and he didn't say a god damn thing about them. I just shake my head....

I consider the potato one of the most important crops that can be grown...Even if its your first time growing anything, you cant puck up growing potatoes. You just cant go wrong....and they store so well...Read that article I posted.....I cant even imagine how primitive the European diet was before the potato was introduced.
