icon Day 40: October 18, 1998

Two tomato plants farthest from the light have withered. It should be noted that nothing has grown in this particular mix of perlite and vermiculite since it was used for Kamut over the summer. The addition of mylar two days ago has paid immediate dividends on the plants closest to the mylar. They are now pointing towards the mylar and all plants along the mylar edge have grown at least 2 inches in the past 2 days! We also have the beginnings of our first bean today.
