send whips of opinion down my back, give me more

Let’s talk about something different

I’m making a bigger and better effort to grow a bunch of food this year. I planted a bunch of seeds in peat pellets the other day, but I didn’t want to spend money on those flimsy plastic greenhouses. Then a little lightbulb appeared over my head…

I have a bunch of these super cheap Sterilite containers. They suck. Half the time, the little latches don’t even work. This is a small one, made for holding index cards.

I put the peat pellets in the lids, soaked them, and planted the seeds.

I closed them upside down, and voila! Mini-greenhouses.

I didn’t take a picture, but I have a larger one – shoebox-sized – that I did the same way. So far I’ve planted kale, spinach, lettuce and broccoli. Tomorrow I’ll be planting multicolored carrots, but those are being sown directly outside.
