I found a new use for my solar oven: possibly redeeming my unconscionable procrastination in getting my seeds started. Note, please, that the seed trays are on top of the oven, not in it. The empty looking tray contains all the heat sluts: tomatoes, chili peppers, and basil. Yeah, I know, I'm waaay behind schedule. But with the sun we're having, the soil in those trays is toasty, toasty. They should be popping their heads up any moment now. Fortunately, there's a breeze to keep the little lettuce sprouts cool. They're probably getting about 2.5 times as much sun as it's possible for them to get otherwise. Grow, dammit, grow! The weather has been just gorgeous. I don't trust it.
Gotta go. More outdoor work to do!
