Little Greenhouse - Version 1

I'm using several methods for starting seeds this year. I bought a store bought heated greenhouse to get everything off on the right foot. I know some vegetables such as peppers, prefer a really warm environment so I got the kit. Here's one similar to the one I picked up (I think I might have gotten last year's model, mine doesn't look quite this nice):


Because I'm notorious for creating a system to remember where things are planted and then losing the system, I opted to do something that would keep my labels nice and close. Using some self adhesive folder tabs, I marked which seeds I planted in each row.


The lid doesn't fit on tightly now but it never really did anyway so I don't think it's going to affect seed germination in the long run.

Here's a closer shot:


And here it is all loaded up and under the grow light:


And there's a sneak peek at my homemade mini greenhouse.

Thank you for reading,


  1. Love the tabs!  Did you start everything or just got everything ready and will plant each row as time goes on?

  2. I only used about half the tray for the seeds I planted and left all the rest of the cells empty. I am adding water to the tray under the seeds instead of watering the cells directly so I don't want extra cells soaking up the water. I don't know if I'm going to be starting any other seeds in here or not, I think everything else will be planted directly in the garden.
