Nice short answer...
 
I guess I should have asked if this train includes countries other than US.
 
I am part of a regular tomato seed train, and it certainly does work.


It’s just super expensive to ship a package this size international, plus I’m sure there would be permits needed. It’s one thing to send a legal size envelope, but this is far larger. That would not be fair to anyone who expected to spend around $7.

Then the shipping time could be up to 2 months each way, so figure 4 months for the package to be unaccounted for.

I think the time the first train left the station was perfect

Last Time it was around October 1st.
It’s late enough to get seeds harvested, and early enough to start them for the next season.

Train has arrived with some fresh pods! How cool is that? That’s a real treat considering up north here in Massachusetts we are months away from seeing anything.

So now that it has wrapped up, when would everyone want to get this rolling again? Fall? Sooner?

So the latest one is the reaper has been beaten... by the reaper. They upped the average SHU rating on the record and called it a new record.

I probably could have came up with a cleaner way of wiring this, but I underestimated this build and was just ready to be done with it. Never used hot glue on a project before, I kinda liked it for keeping the wires from getting too crazy

Edit, forgot the picture lol.


You could simplify it by tying them all together (same polarity together for parallel) and run a single pair of wires to a single dimmer.

You would lose the ability to dim each color individually though.

It was a lot of work, I heard about lights being dim at the end of strips so I ran wires off of each strip instead of Daisy chaining them together. Idk if it was really that important, but I didn't want some strips to be dim.


Makes sense since lights wired in series will have more resistance than if they were wired in parallel. The longer the chain, the more resistance.

To answer your question about this year's grow, Jeff, your grow is going a hell of a lot better than mine. My plants are about half the size of yours, and I killed about half of them already by failing to water. :tear:  I hope I have enough to fill my garden. 


I’m sorry to hear that :(
I started way to early, and grew more than I really knew what to do with. I figured if I ran out of room, I could always give a few plants away.
