Again, I recommend to all contestants, get your pic shooting skills honed for the final pics! At that point, it's a beauty contest, and if you're interesting in actually winning, better pics = better chances when the voting public weighs in
to Waira’s point.... a picture tells a thousand stories! I had some shots last year I wish I had submitted instead of what I did.

Shiva's Mistress: Guerilla Auto Anarchy in the UK

2021/06/11: Day 24 from sprouting (Day 29 from germ)

UK weather has picked up, now with sunshine and day temps 20+C, even up to 25C.
So I've been putting them outside during the day to harden off.

@pop22 @Waira -- They've mostly gotten over their former problems, so I am thinking it was those little bio pots.
Still look a bit stunted though.
Maybe they'll go into their outside homes soon.
Though I'll need to do some more site prep.

Have a couple of Twenty20 Auto Go-Go babies just out of the ground as well.
If these Seedstockers have further issues, I may switch to one of the Twenty20s for this Outdoor Battle!

I use straw and move it aside to top dress, then put the straw back :thumbsup:

That's what I do as well.

Tho I'm using grass/nettle mulch clippings from around my yard instead of straw.

It can be a bit tedious at times to move the mulch to the side when watering & feeding the soil but that top layer of grass/nettle mulch really helps to keep the things "alive" and active around the top soil, as well as keeping the soil a bit cooler and helping to retain moisture.

:jointman: let'm roll for a bit and see what they do,... If they wonk-out, then I say hook them T20M girls up in here! G&S stuff isn't what I'd call a "contest", so anything in a G&S gig is fine to run in here as well!

I don't use the straw or wood chips because I top dress with dry nutrients and did not want the stuff in the way. Maybe it would still be ok :shrug:
No till with cover crop! Toss the top layere and plant clover and grass! Wood chips are crapy if you get Michigan weather!
