Our adventures around the homestead.

Putting on the Foil Coach

At the suggestion of Judy who blogs at Grandparentsplus2, I snagged one of those extra foil space blankets that I had in an old hunting pouch and re-purposed it for my seed starting rack.  Now I am not sure that I will ever be able to get this thing back in it’s tiny pouch after this but we will see if this helps reflect more light onto the seedlings.

Below the Peas are starting to get tall.

The onions are starting to get bigger, and I must admit I sprinkled the rest of the seed packet into the peat pots in hopes of increasing my onion density.

The Cilantro has started to poke out of the pots.

I have held off a little on starting more plants until we see if winter is almost down.  Despite a warm up this week we still have a deep snow pack and tall snow banks here.  Depending how this weekends boiling goes, I may start some more plants with the kids, but we will have to wait and see…

  1. Looks good. You need to find one more blanket so none of your light or heat escapes. 🙂 And, I’m with you – these snow banks are still darn high.

    • Yep – it’s hard to go from 50F yesterday to 25F today, with that brutal wind. Just when you think spring is close, mother nature changes her mind yet again!
