It’s Good to be Ghetto

I found myself in Target this morning, veering off course from the girls clothes I was there to procure.  As I was wandering, I spied a petite metal shelving unit for around $15 dollars.  It stands roughly three feet high and has three shelves.  I scooped that bad boy up and ran to the registers, better to get out while I was ahead.  Then I made the fatal mistake of stopping at Ace Hardware.  I swear that place is going to be my downfall.  I grabbed some larger peat pots for when my seedlings are ready to pot up.  (See how I’m all optimistic that I’ll actually have seedlings to pot up?).  While there I also picked up seed starting mix, a small bag of vermiculite (gotta get it where and when I can), two large-ish bricks of peat moss and a bag of perlite.  A few seed packets found theie way into my cart (cucumbers and cauliflower) and I found a plant lite stick (that’s what it’s called) for about $25.   Using a few ball bungees I had laying around the house and trays I had in the garage (which now house a LOT of dead bugs, eww), I present my ghetto seed starting station.  The only thing missing is a heat mat, and I may just rig a heating pad somehow to keep them warm, how wonderfully ghetto would that be?

  1. Good luck with your new set up. I still haven’t bought any starting mix. I have to get to it. I’m almost out of last years.
