This year though, I bought a little mobile garden greenhouse that you can start indoors. We even bought grow lights for them.
The seeds we bought are heritage seeds and some old flower seeds as well. Most of them though are vegetables we’re trying to grow and a couple flowers too.
Vegetables: tomato, broccoli, peppers, lettuce, celery, onion, cucumber, okra and basil (not a veggie but w/e)
Flowers: sweet williams, zinnias, sweet peas, and daisies
What I really want one day is to have a big hobby greenhouse that I can setup outside to use year round. I think they are just great and perfect for places where you can’t otherwise have flowers or grow vegetables or fruit year round. Ah.. one day.
For now though, I’m trying to make do with what I’ve got. I think the setup we have now is a good start for the garden we’re trying to get setup for this year. If all goes well, we will have many homegrown vegetables and probably save money on some groceries too. Always a bonus!
The greenhouse accessories that will really be helpful with this though is the grow light and the use of my old aquarium. Without that we wouldn’t really be able to start as many indoors as we are now (too many other stationary plants are in front of windows right now that get the best sun).
I’ll post more once more activity is happening in the garden – but as a sneak peak, I did 12+ hours of yard work last week trying to get the yard back in shape! Talk about being sore for days afterward though… ugh I still feel it.
