The weather has been so mild this year that on nice days I put the veg & herb starts outside on the deck. But not today. Brrrr. It's only 43F and there's a stiff (15-20 mph) North wind blowing outside. I'm not subjecting my babies to that! So I decided it was time to assemble one of the tabletop hoop houses so the plants could enjoy the sun without all that cold and wind.
Outside it's just uncomfortable, even for me. But inside the hoopster it's nice and bright and warm.
In the very back you'll see that I decided to bring the 'maters up from the basement too. I don't care how many grow lights I might have down there, you just can't beat a good dose of real sunshine.
All that's left downstairs are 4 trays of annual flowers I'm starting on the heat tray. Seems with this unusually warm weather this Spring the secret basement plant lab can't hold on to anything for long. Too bad, so sad -- not! LOL
