I didn't notice the plants in the dog crate!!!!My bad tomatoes! They are doing 30 days in the hole!!
Seriously though I bought them last week on an impulse purchase because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to get them when things warmed up. I think more people are going to garden this year so I figured I'd grab them because I saw them.
Well I don't start seeds inside because we have 3 cats who'd love nothing more than to make green confetti with any plants I grow.
So 1 panic.....errr......impulse......ummmm.....thinking big picture purchase (yes lets go with that!) lead to another idea. I rigged up my hillbilly greenhouse (DW's term for this set up) to keep them happy till they can be planted outside.
So there sits my 5 little Early Girls (DW's favorite variety of tomato) and waiting patiently. The light was one that was hung in the garage where the previous homeowners had a work bench. The bench was long gone and I haven't used the light since we moved in but was finally able to put it to use.
I've got new growth on them too so its obviously working. The dog crate will fold up and stores easily enough along with the light so I may resurrect this set up next year and really have some fun starting things.
THAT is absolutely Brilliant! I Have an extra dog crate sitting and gathering dust. I WILL pull mine out to keep the cats at bay.
