Over the next couple of months, I'll be busy getting a head start on the growing season by starting seedlings inside, in an effort to have established plants ready to plant outdoors by the time it's warm enough to do so.
Now, we've got a garden more than three times larger than our last, but no consistently warm house to start seeds in. We decided to use our newly constructed greenhouse for a seedling nursery, as our tiny home on wheels has little space to spare. The problem with starting seeds in our greenhouse is that it's still much too cold for most seedlings to thrive. We looked into buying seed tray heating mats, but one can pay $30 for a single mat, and we needed at least 15 of them!
Before I knew it, he had put together the table, so quickly that I didn't even get a chance to take a picture of him building it!
Here's what it looked like mid-construction (apologies for the poor quality nighttime in the garage photo):
So, if you're looking to get a head start on the growing season and want to save some cash by growing your own seedlings, we hope that you might find this idea helpful! You may even already have everything you need in your garage for your own heated seed-starting table...
Until next time, happy seed starting!
