I finally planted the rest of my vegetables today. Due to budgetary issues, the wife didn’t want me buying more seed starting gear…I had to make due with what I had. I had some extra starter discs, but I didn’t have a tray to put them in. So I improvised. I’m not using the lid on my big tray anymore, because the plants are too tall. So that top became the bottom for my other veggies.
I tried to start a vegetable garden last year and I had all my seeds started…until I got leukemia. When that happened, the whole project halted. I had tilled the garden, fertilized with horse manure, and all that. But being in a coma for a month dampens the ability to work on such a project.
I’m trying again this year…with some improvements. Last year, I just put my seeds in an eastern window. That was grossly insufficient. They came up spindly and weak. This year, I built a growing rack to hang grow lights on. It’s allowing me to start more seeds, as well as give them a better start.
