This is the first year I’m starting seeds indoors. My mother gave me all her seed starting supplies including a number of 6 cell pots, a bunch of flats and (drumroll) three grow lights!!!
I bought some chain, drilled some holes and hung the lights (thanks hubby), tossed some dirt into some cells and VOILA ready to plant!
So here’s the setup:
So, you’re asking, what am I growing under those pretty lights? Here ya go: Spinach, kale, lettuce, peas (I couldn’t resist but they’re not really an indoor kinda crop), peppers (theoretically), mint, basil, marigolds, broccoli and tomatoes, tomatoes, tomatoes! I think I have six different varieties of tomatoes right now. They are the real reason that I wanted to start things indoors, you can’t get the same variety in started seedlings from garden stores. I’m growing two different kinds of sauce tomatoes (Heinz and Polish Linguista), some cherry and a bunch of “fresh eating” tomatoes including some Yellow Pears!
I’m so friggin excited about this season!!!!
