130. Here in Maine...........
It has scarcely been above freezing all last month.......... today it is trying to break 32o at 2 pm.!
The red potatoes I grew last summer sprouted in the dark cabinet. ( red potatoes don't keep as long.)
On the waxing full moon in taurus, I cut them into pieces ( one for each sprouted spot) and planted them in a giant flower pot. A month later they have put up lovely green shoots with leaves. I dodn't think potatoes need pollination because the edible part is the root..............but some tomato plants are self pollinating, ( sorry don't remember the varieties,) and all are perennial. I have had fresh tomatoes in June by growing them in the house through the winter. I don't use a grow light just several southern & western windows!
Parsley is a better source of vitamin C than oranges...........and my stevia is booming along. I hear it is hard to grow from seed, but I bought a plant several years ago, it has almost died off twice, ( when I had to go away ) ANd both times it puts up new shoots.
Basically...food is FREE! Monsanto is trying to change that.
