So, do you absolutely love it? Pics? This $%^ rain actually had me thinking about this, but then I discovered that I wouldn't get it before the rain is almost gone, so I'll make do with what I have for this year, but if this setup is absolutely amazing, I may just have to have one for next winter.

Post  Judy McConnell on 4/3/2019, 11:46 am

Well, I had experience with a wire bookcase-like shelving unit and tied on aquarium lights before. 

This set-up had everything I wanted. The only question I've had about it are the lights strong enough, because the lettuce seedlings developed long stems.  The rest of the plants are doing well, tho.

The reflectors supplied may not be enough, so for the next set of seeds, I'll add foil covering over the lights to focus the light more.

Am I happy with the units - Yes! Very! The expense seems acceptable because one never makes money on backyard gardening - except for the home grown food aspect.

An addition - Gardeners has frequent discount coupons that might help defray the costs.

Thanks, Judy. That's about what I expected.

What's your favorite kitchen/garden gadget? - Page 9 Empty bucket

Post  countrynaturals on 5/17/2019, 5:44 pm

Katie was cleaning out a shed and asked if I wanted this bucket -- origin unknown. I said yes, but without much enthusiasm -- I just hate to throw anything out that still has some use.

I took the thing home and used it once to water some container plants. WOW! I'M IN LOVE! I love you  This simple design is so much easier to haul around and pour from than a round bucket. Now I'm surprised that there are still round buckets left in the world. This little unsung hero deserves a medal.

Tried the 5 gal bags for peppers and discovered they were too small -difficult to keep watered  enough.

Last year had 15 gal bags and used them for indeterminate tomatoes - worked well.

I bought this spudger to repair my Ebook reader. Since that's something I hope I don't have to do very often, I pressed it into service as a transplant tool for sprouts. It seems to work better than a pencil, which is a bit too pointy.

I got this at an all-things-Japanese store. It hasn't been as useful as I hoped, but it does come in handy from time to time. Notice I painted the handles to make it easier to find when I'm having an obviously premature senior moment:
