Seed Starting

We’ve been planning and scheming and getting ready to start seeds. Two weeks ago I thought I bought a seedling heat mat but when we got home I could not. find it. anywhere. Farmer Tripp set up the trays and the mini greenhouses in the workshop while I was at the National Ladies Homestead Gathering Annual Board Meeting in Georgia, but we still haven’t started a single seed! I searched the garden shed, the car, and finally the Google for the 4-tray heating mat I found at Fifth Season Gardening in Charlottesville, but I couldn’t find it anywhere. I checked with my dad twice to make sure we didn’t leave it at his house, before finally giving up. I called Fifth Season and asked them to send me another one. These starts better be good!

Four trays with vented covers plus a 48″ shop light with 2 Kitchen & Bath (5000K) and 2 Sunshine (3000K) bulbs. Once the heating mat arrives we’ll be growing all kinds of veggies in the workshop! Can’t wait!
