2012~"WHAT'S GROWING SERIES"~MY NEW GREENHOUSE & INDOOR NURSERY!

I'm starting a new GARDEN SERIES called 
"2012~WHAT'S GROWING SERIES".
I'll be taking you along as I set up my garden, plant my garden & all the things in between.
Hope you'll all come along with me!


 I decided to get an early start on my gardening this year.  I stole the shelf from my garage, ordered some warming mats for my seedlings,  purchased some fluorescent garage lights & bulbs from Home Depot and purchased my seeds from 




Here are my little babies in the nursery in my family room!!

I always wanted a Greenhouse to extend my planting season.  
At Lowes, I Purchased  this
 (8 x 10 x 8) SPRING GARDENER  GARDEN GREENHOUSE 
For a beginner like myself, this is perfect.  
Here she is all put together in my backyard spot.
I place the Greenhouse on a cement slab, and nailed it to the ground using this nail gun, nails & .22 shells.  so that it won't move if there are high winds.
The baby isn't going ANYWHERE!!
I also stapled pieces of furring strips to the bottom to seal the Greenhouse. 
 Later I'll seal the inside with caulk. 
Until later!
