While I was researching different ways to build a solar oven I found an article about what to do with aluminum foil. One of the things listed was about lining a box with foil and placing a plant in the box to reflect the light onto the plant so it would be more compact.
These tomato plants are so leggy that I thought a foil box may help them. I really don’t mind them being leggy if the plants are strong, because everything you see will be planted underground anyway. More about planting tomatoes next month.
So here is how I applied the foil concept to my tomato seedlings.
Lined a box with aluminum foil.
Placed a phone book inside to set the tomato tray on to be closer to the light.
Placed the tomato seedlings on the phone book.
I decided to put my Ottlite light above the box. If I didn't put the light over the box
then I would have raised the back of it slightly to get more sunlight into the box.
Maybe foil behind the box and over the light will create a better reflection?
