    Congrats on F of the D! Containers rule, fluorescents suck the life out of you. Unless, of course, they are full-spectrum grow lights over your seedlings.

    I expect there are no Lilacs in bloom today in Cheyenne. It's been chilly here in Eastern Nebraska as well. The good news is it's about 75 days until spring.

    Have a great Wyoming florescent light day.
