It is on the same idea of what I have in my kitchen only yours a lot better. I need to put my lights in better where the light is more even. I am going to show this DS and see if he can rig something up better for me. It looks great! Thank you!@Gardening with Rabbits View attachment 39942
This is the cart we have now it came from Costco and sold as a wardrobe cart. It has castors and a shelf on top where we stack flats and cell packs and whatever else we use. It is not perfect but it is way better than the homemade one that we used to use. It came with the hooks on the side where you can see the most complicated wiring mess on earth lol we are also able to roll it out to a storage room when not in use. I think we paid $75.00 for it on sale a few years ago and don’t plan on upgrading anymore than this. This setup is not nearly like what @catjac1975 is getting , the one she is getting is made for seed starting and is a lot more user friendly than this one.
It is on the same thought of how I have mine, lights tied to shelves above. I did get better lights, but my top shelf does not have a shelve above, so I have just rigged something up there. For now I think this will work for the amount of things I grow. Again, my tomatoes look bad this year because I started them before I found some new lights, but some look pretty good and I started a few more. They are outside in the greenhouse getting sun.@ninnymary, this cart is exactly 4’ wide to the outside edge. That is why the lights have to be in between the legs of the cart and not spread out enough to cover the entire flat. So we end up having to move each flat every day to keep the seedlings growing straight under the lights. Also the shelves are 18” deep so the flats hang over an inch or so on both sides. Other than
those couple things we like the cart better than our old home cobbled together one we used before.
@Gardening with Rabbits , there are several shortcomings with this setup but it is working good for us so far. Let me know if you need additional pics.
I've tried burying them deep when I transplant and they don't do well for me. I think it's because of our heavy clay soil and that the ground is still so cold 8-10" down. They always seem stunted even though I harden them off plenty. This year I'm hoping to get a head start on root development with deeper containers and not have to plant them quite so deep.plus i really don't mind leggy tomato plants when planting them out since we bury them deeply.
