greenhouse sprouting

My January 1st plantings have sprouted, with few exceptions.

Somewhat generous for some of them should have waited for 55-60 degree temperatures, but I gave them a chance to stretch the envelope.

Today I got lights hung above the sprouts. Many have been complaining there was not enough coming through the windows on these short days.

Only 10 days until the next full moon.

I wonder what I will plant then.

A couple weeks after that I will need to add more lights.

By then I will have picked a favorite or two from the light-bar sampler I installed today.
