There you go. Have some herbs growing. Some seeds germinating on heat pad: micro tomato plants, micro pepper plants, lettuce, kale... I have other lights I want to put on but I need to change my timer first. Question for those more used to such structure: what is the ideal light cycle? 12 on/12 off?

I’ll start my garden seeds there shortly.

i am doing 14 on and 10 off but will move it to 16 on and 8 off as we get closer to spring sun hours.. I run it though the night to save on power costs at winter rates, huge savings to run it that way

Does getting a COVID vaccine count as a prep?

Was gifted three 2Gals fire extinguishers. Nice complements to the multiple 20lbs ABC extinguishers I have around the property.
