Another idea for homemade greenhouses.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

After reading Kim's post about repurposing hosehould items to make a greenhouse (http://www.mommysavers.com/c/t/200064/cheap-way-to-start-seeds-indoors-by-repurposing-household-items) I decided to try to make my own greenhouses.  I started out to buy the containers since I didn't think the salad container would be big enough for me.  I bought a package of two cake pans with lids at my local grocery store.  We went to Walmart for potting soil but I found these pellet refills and thought that would be easier than messing with potting soil.  We used color coded toothpicks to label the plants.  It was so easy and inexpensive - $2.49 for the cake pans, $2.50 for 36 pellets, I used two boxes.

That is awesome!  So for those pellets, do you plant right into the pellet?  That is cool.  I have a couple of cupcake holders that have a lit, that would work good too.  Maybe I should start getting some stuff seeded now.  My dad is going to come over next week to help me build up my garden, I am so excited!

Yes, you plant right into the pellet.  It was super easy.
