OK, I splurged a bit. Considering last year's success with my make-shift grow stand from cobbled together parts, I was able to justify the expense to buy myself a proper one, with better quality adjustable lights and more space. What better way to cure a gardener's lust for growing green things than to start growing indoors! I'm going to use this stand to grow fresh herbs in the winter months, maybe even some salad greens, like arugula and mizuna, and catnip for Sweet Pea, Squeak, and Leo. (I learned not to grow catnip outdoors unless you want every neighborhood cat to relocate to your property) I'm also going to use it to get a head start on some flower and vegetable seeds. Just turning it on and seeing the glow warms my heart.

I can't wait to get started growing! I have an addiction to seed starting, I just love seeing the green sprouts poke their way through the soil, and I love being able to grow obscure native plants that you can only get by growing them from seed.
Since Jeff's old photo developing room is now the growing room, we "re-purposed" his developing sink into a potting bench in the garage. This is long overdue and my poor back will very much appreciate being able to work standing up.
Now, where did I put those seed catalogs.....
