icon Day 22: September 30, 1998

The 6 bean plants are from 4 inches to 12 inches high. The smallest is not the farthest from the light. It may have been transplanted too early. After 10 days, 4 bean plants have germinated and are from 2” to 4” inches tall, with the tray 14” to 18” below the light vs. the 5 days it took, 1” directly below the light. Two tomato plants have germinated and we are going to leave them in place until they are larger based on our past experience in this test. An additional tub has been added for the 4 bean plants transplanted. The light coverage area is now 7 sq. ft. We transplanted the largest bean plant the farthest from the light.
