So I cleaned out the garden shed. Now the mini greenhouse is ready for the cool weather seedlings that will stay in the cold shed, under lights. That gives me the entire indoor shelving system for warm weather seedlings, like tomatoes and peppers.
Speaking of seedlings, I'd never used Miracle Gro before, simply because of the bad things that I'd read in other blogs. However, when I was ready to start some seedlings there was nothing else available on the shelves, so I grabbed a small bag. I ran out when I was about halfway through seeding the beets, and by this time the stores had stocked their garden shelves, so I bought a large bag of a "professional" type potting mix and finished planting the beets in that. Well the Miracle Gro beets are four times the size of the others. That being said, I don't think I'd ever grow beet seedlings inside again. I think they grow much stockier when direct seeded. I do think I'll turn a deaf ear to the naysayers and buy another bag of Miracle Gro for starting the rest of my seedlings.
After lunch, there was nothing I could do outside, so I spent the afternoon resting. So did Annie and Otto.....silly Mr. Granny, he thought this room was his man cave.
