Indoor Vegetable Gardening Carrots and Soybeans

It's been about a month since I planted the carrot and soybean seeds indoors. I think they look pretty good, no signs of disease and the leaves are a nice healthy green.

According to the seed packets the carrots should be ready for harvest early April and the soybeans by late April. Those packets assume full sun exposure, however, so these indoor grown ones might take a little longer.

Seed starting for the rooftop vegetable plants will begin in a few weeks. I cannot wait! Once those seeds are started these pots will be moved from directly underneath the grow light to the sides, closer to the wall. Moving these plants away from the grow light will also increase the time to maturity, but I'm not in a rush so I don't care.  As long as they're edible when they're harvested I'll be happy.
