Discernment

We now have 2 grow lights going on our light rack over 4 flats of parsley, goji, broccoli, cabbage, and peppers.  Now we won't be using all of those plants, nor have room for them, some are spares and many are for giving away.  We will be starting more seeds in a few days for cauliflower, chive, onions, and thyme.
4 Flats on Light Rack 

Some of the seedlings are quite obvious and easy to differentiate between, for example the red cabbage has a nice purple leaf. But others are quite similar, for example the parsley and goji.  It is important to label and separate the seedlings to help identify them.  It is easy now inside, in our controlled environment (unless we mess up) but a little more difficult outside with weeds in the mix.  It is just like the wheat and the tares parable in the Bible.  They look the same growing up and you can't tell them apart until they produce fruit.  It is the same with people.  Some are obvious who they serve, some are a little more difficult to tell apart.  That is why scripture tells us that we can know them by their fruit..
