I’ve used a big five-shelf unit with lights that is perfect, but as I ‘mature’ dragging all of that down from the attic is a real challenge. So, the last few years, I’ve tried a few different things.
This year, I’m using a 4′ ft folding table, clear plastic self-adhesive on the table and carpet, and a pvc light hanger that my husband enhanced so it will hold two lights.
The light hanger is not glued together so we can take it apart and store easily. Here’s a DIY link for the light holder. The cover on top is a $4 emergency blanket that keeps the light and heat inside. The temps stay right around 75+ under the cover.
The seeds were started on February 15th as suggested, and so far 22 of the 25 seeds have germinated. 88% germination rate – not bad Urban Farmer. 👏🏻
This week I’m going to start a couple of tomatoes, cucumbers, and a few flowers. I buy most of the flowers I want, but some aren’t available here such as Mexican Sunflowers, Sweet Peas, and Crocosmia Lucifer which the butterflies love.
Taking care of seeds is cathartic as I await the warmer weather so I can go outside and get going on spring chores.
Do you garden? Veggies or flowers? Containers count. 🙂
Speaking of containers, if you like looking at ‘really’ amazing containers, check out Deborah Silver a landscaper in MI. She is way out of my league, but I sure do love to ooh and aah over her huge creations. She’s on Pinterest, Facebook, and has a blog. It’s always fun to look plus you can pick up an idea every once in a while.
Need to vent about technology this week, check out Dan’s post today. We may not fix anything, but it feels good to share our frustrations. 🙂
Happy second week in March, and stay well.
