♥ A Little Hope on a Rainy Spring Day ♥

I have been trying to be extremely patient with my seedlings this year b/c I am doing them in a totally different way then before.  I use to start my plants using the jiffy seed starter mini greenhouse, but decided to try my own recycled seed starting pots and a little greenhouse the BF's grandma found at Kinneys for $25.  I really didn't care about the greenhouse, but I needed a nice set of shelves to put in front of our sliding glass door b/c it receives a good amount of sun for most of the day.  The greenhouse seems to be helping b/c yesterday morning my Roma tomatoes and my pansies finally popped up! :)  :)

Mini Greenhouse

So since the recycled newspaper pots seem to be working well, yesterday I started my snapdragons, black eyed susans, dahlias and fox glove.  All I have left to start this week are the zinnias, Chinese lanterns, and sunflowers.  I think my little greenhouse will be full.  :)

Don't forget I will be at two craft shows this coming weekend, one Friday April 15th from 4 pm - 8 pm at the American Legion in Winthrop and Saturday April 16th from 9 am - 3 pm at the New Testament Church in Massena.
