I meant to look into a shelf system for seedlings this weekend. Best of intentions … But my cold is still getting the better of me.
I was feeling good on Saturday and maybe over did it with a nice hike. After doing the school-sport-cheering-Mom thing, I took some kids and some dogs hiking. The local Boston trails are covered with a foot of packed powder. Fantastic for hiking. Unusual here. Usually we get melting and end up with icy slick paths, terrible to walk on. Packed powder is beautiful, the hike was lovely. But today I’m “under the weather” again….
Anyway, the plan is to buy an inexpensive metal shelf system (I’m hoping for good sale at Target or Costo). I have a wall area cleared and ready. A south facing window to make use of what sunlight there is. I’ll buy lights and attach them to each shelf. (Someone left me a comment here with nice plans for a shelf and light set up. I hope I can locate this comment.)
Last year I tried to go with only window light and this was not enough. I then used my fish tank light and my tank didn’t do so good. I’m looking forward to a nice seedling shelf. I enjoy watching the seedlings grow. I’m sure I’ll end up with photos to post….
