Seed Starter

The seed starter was reborn this year. The shop lights we had used previously were used to light up the garage/shop. I bought some smaller florescent lights which were hardwired to a light timer.


It only will hold two flats of seedlings, but that is usually plenty for our garden. And I found a great little dome to use to germinate seeds: an old cake tray leftover from a birthday party. You might also notice the tin-foil: I was trying to direct the light to the seedling instead of lighting up the room they were in.

So far, I’ve started asparagus, lettuce, and cabbage that are all doing well and close to transplanting. Just seeded are tomatillos, peppers and more lettuce. More will be seeded later.
