when seed~starting time begins...
we're faced with the puzzle of where to place them. This year...that problem was blissfully solved in a creative and frugal way...by the simple act of re~purposing one (of three) glass and wood display boxes...all were found at an estate sale for only a few dollars each!
Using a small amount of elbow grease, paint and time it was transformed into an enchantingly useful miniature green house...
a grow box...
an atrium~like magic environment that allowed those tiny little seeds room...light...and love enough to sprout and grow!
Here's how simple it was.
2. Next we taped off the glass areas for easier clean~up then we...painted!
3. Once dry...it was lined with brown paper (from a Trader Joe's bag) and our young seedlings were set inside. The box was then set atop a small, south~facing table in our nook! FYI: We used an existing hinge on the arm to keep the lid propped open, thus ensuring proper air circulation (to avoid the development of mold).
Hint: A thrifted, stainless creamer was the perfect solution for making watering our seedlings simple and efficient.
if we but look !!!
Sending good thoughts and love to you all!!!
