Just checking in to let you all know that the corn in the garage are doing great and the peas in the house are also doing very well. I had to put a dowel teepee around the peas so they could start vining up something, even a three inches apart they were leaning over to vine to each other. They appear to be very happy without their heated soil and thriving in the sun. Soon I am sure I will see pods forming.

Day 14
I have decided to place the corn in the milk jugs out in the garage until I can get them outside into the ground. They no longer have the benefit of the heating pad so I will have to see how that affects them. I turned the heat off completely to the peas to see how they will react as well. It is the first step in hardening them off. I have pretty much given up on the non-heated plants. Some of them are still hanging on, but there are so few, almost the whole container is empty.

Day 13
I seperated the peas in the heated soil to be 3 inches apart instead of the 1 inch that I had originally planted them at. I replanted the corn and had to use milk jugs with the top cut off because the plants were so tall. I burried them up to their first leaves. Now they aer only 2 inches tall, but looking a little happier that they don't have to support their whole stock anymore. Nothing new going on in the non-heated soil. Only few survivors and just a few newbies popping up.
