Mini-Greenhouse Gardening

Okay, so lets talk about gardening! The last few days have been so very near spring like it's glorious! Of course I have been stuck in doors.  The weather has been so crazy lately I haven't dared to even look at my patio.  I have, however, found this strange little plastic, miniature greenhouse thing.  I'm thinking that if I can start it indoors, maybe by the time the weather has mellowed out just a bit I can move everything into pots and out on the patio.


So the first thing you do is - submerge the whole thing in water and let the little peat pallets expand.  Once they've expanded -- which happened SO fast I really was surprised at how quickly they were ready.  The instructions say to pour off water, but I didn't have any to pour off.  I was a bit confused on the following instructions.  I thought you should pull the netting off of the pallets, and did that to two of them - which was kind of a disaster.


So you really peel back the netting and then plant 2-3 seeds on each pallet.

And now I wait for it to grow!!!!

I have one of these, too! I will probably be starting mine tomorrow, though.

Yeah!! I wanna hear how yours goes. I didn't use the full 2 1/2 liters to fill the tray because the pallets were floating around. Now, I had two that were only nominally expanded so I poured extra water over those and didn't seed them till the end. Currently it's residing on my kitchen table - which is one of those tall pub sets, but not very big. That's okay, I don't use it very often because as cool as the table set looks - after a while you get tired of not touching the ground. So the green house can stay there until I need to move it....

About Me

My photo
Grew up traveling to rodeos with my parents. I've gone across the world thanks to my gypsie feet. I feel sometimes like I've done everything & nothing. I've played roller derby, traveled parts of the world, have four degrees. I've done some things most people will never do in their lives & still I want to do more. I want to work with orphans & teenagers again. I'm a Christian. I have a lot of tattoos. I like art therefore I want to be art. I love people. I started writing years ago when I was a kid. I think at the time it was an outlet for me; I found escape in my word & the worlds I created. Eventually I just started to like creating stuff & that's when I started sharing it with other people. Now I think I write every day. I want to do NaNoWrMo this year. I'm also learning how to knit. I think I'm on my way to being an eccentric old woman who runs around the world doing silly cazy things and knitting while she does them. Be on your guard I have knitting needles!
