This is why we need to get the plants outside. They are taking over the house! Anyone who doesn’t believe that plants don’t help to regulate moisture need only come visit the grow room in my basement. When I arrived today after the house being closed for two days, every window in the place was dripping condensation. The basement could be a sauna with all of the moisture the plants are wicking into the air! It was so moist that the stack of envelopes I keep down there for work had all sealed themselves! It is a pleasant environment but we are once again to the stage in the gardening where the plants now need to go live in the real world! Hopefully mid-week next week I can get the tasks done to make that happen and MAYBE the weather will cooperate!
