I'm impressed with everything you're doing, and let me just say "hats off" to how you handle keeping your significant other happy; definitely something we all seem to have to manoeuvre around, and you seem to have it down to an art form! She's definitely a keeper, and I guess all the good ones know how much it means to us to have this hobby!
That light looks like serious business, that should definitely help kick start all your seedlings into proper trees sooner than later!
Super exciting about your other plants arriving soon, looking forward to seeing the pics on those and watching them develop!

Thank you sir! She is a keeper for sure. We've been married for 9 years now and have never spent a day apart since day 1 so I guess that means we like each other eh? lol. It is true, it's very important to let your significant other dive into hobbies or things they enjoy otherwise there's resentment and that never works out well for anyone! Plants are here, I'm pretty damn excited about em, I was racing home when my wife told me she just received an email that they were dropped off, really nice to be growing again! Thanks for stopping by!
I hear ya, about the wife not liking your grow setup, which your setup idea is awesome IMO. . My wife don’t like me to get my seeds started at home because my pots and planters aren’t pretty enough they don’t match the house decor. So I do all my seed starting at work .

Man that is too funny! You should consider finding some spray paint that matches the kitchen cabinets and go to town on some flats and nursery cans and see how it works out for ya lol, I would totally do that!
"wtf is this?"
"well, they do match now..."
In another hobby forum I participate in (Home automation forums), we use a phrase "WAF", short for "Wife Acceptance Factor", I feel the same expression can be used here.
I am so using that! Oh man that is some funny shit. Even had my wife laughing her ass off.
Here's one my wife loves to use on me...
"You may be the head of the household but I'm the neck and I can turn the head annnnnnyway I would like"
Brandon, your enthusiasm is fantastic
Might I ask where you scored all those goodies? I live in the boonies and the good stuff is non existent.
As for WAF, what I did was get her involved and started growing more stuff she could use (and like), so she's fully invested now.
I'm looking forward to watching your grow this year!
Hey Devv! First off I have your glog in my crosshairs... I need to get over there! I'm trying to knock out a good 3-5 glogs a day playing catch up! Thanks for the compliments! I have a tendency to have a bit of a V8 motor of a mouth that combined with being overly excited to grow again is probably where the enthusiasm comes from I got the goodies from a place called Black Lake Organics, they specialize in organic meals at wholesale pricing here in WA.. You would have to search and see if you have something like it in your area. It's a life saver, 140lbs worth of meals for 150$. If I tried to buy what I bought there at a hydro shop I would be willing to guess it would have been easily 500-600 dollars later and that ain't happenin!
That's cool your wife gardens with ya! My wife is pretty neutral when it comes to gardening. She thinks it's cool and all, eats some, cooks with it, humors me, listens, looks, and waters my stuff when I'm at work but there's no shovel and gloves in her day to day activities that's for sure. I'm okay with that, I have full control of what, when and how when it comes to the yard.
Home automation, eh.
I kinda got that at my house, whenever I’m home my wife automatically tells me what to, what needs to be done, how it should be done .
But she did get me a raised bed a few years ago, cause the 5 gal bucket garden, she didn’t like how it looked

Oh man you're killing me here too freaking funny! Hey that's a win with the raised bed I don't care who you are! Again, maybe paint some of those 5 gals to match the trim on your exterior and maybe you could get away with a few I'd pay to see that
Thanks for stopping by everyone!
Edit.... I guess I should hop on that band wagon eh?
