Two posts, one day. Wahoo! This one was supposed to go up yesterday but we were too busy romping around in the warm sunshine.
We’ve been saving up toilet paper rolls at our house so we could try this:
Those contain Leeks, DiCocco Broccoli, and the Early Purple Sprouting Broccoli with some composty stuff on top for warmth. I’m really worried about the temperatures in the windows though, especially with the
stupid snow much needed moisture today.
An aside: Using the innocuous word, “moisture” in lieu of the words rain, storm, blizzard, etc. must be kind of a Mormon culture thing, at least in the Utah, Idaho, Arizona area. When we pray out loud in a public setting, like say, someone giving the opening prayer at church, they’ll thank the Good Lord for the MOISTURE we’re receiving / received. Say it’s raining cats and dogs, or snowing sideways, or loud thunder and lightening is shaking the building. Doesn’t matter, it’s moisture. It’s semantics, I know, but to me, moisture is a light mist. Beads of water on your shower door. Damp fog on your bathroom mirror. Trapped droplets between double panes of glass. Moisture is not a storm that is tearing branches off the trees and turning coiffed church goers with we plastic bonnets into miserable drowned rats.
Alrighty then! I have a two foot snowdrift at my front door, but don’t worry, it’s just moisture.
Here are some more TP seedling containers, residing in my 3 year old’s room:
And here are some re-used pansy pots that have been planted with bell peppers and Casper Eggplant.
I’m thinking, with our crazy weather, I might want to set up a wire shelving unit (which I already have out in the shop) with some kind of light system. Anyone have lights for their late winter / early spring seedlings? If so, do you have a recommendation? I’m still googling around and checking out the different types and wondering why we couldn’t just rig up something ourselves.
