Seedlings taking over ;-)

Post  Kate888 on 4/19/2013, 1:19 pm

I moved most of my seedlings up to my dining room as I was running out of room under the shoplights in my workshop in the basement. I hope they will be happier with the warmer temps upstairs, though it's been rainy and cloudy since I brought them up a few days ago. I hope they are getting enough sunlight. I have another 30 or so starts still in small cells in the workshop. They need to be moved to bigger pots, but I don't have any! I thought I'd have all my brassicas planted by now (normally would have planted almost 2 weeks ago) and have those pots, but as it's getting down to 28 tonight I'm still waiting.

I set up tray tables and had to move the table to make enough room. Hubby was mostly patient with this, although he teased that my plants are squeezing him out.

I had the same problem up until today. I finally got to move about 230 seedlings to the garden today so now I have room again inside. Good luck juggling the seedlings until they can go out!

By the way, I love the frames your pots fit into. Do the pots come like that all connected, or are they bought separately? They look a lot better than me did when my onion seedlings were in 4" pots crookedly sitting on top of the covers from three rubbermaid bins.

Thanks! Looks like we're in the same boat.

Hey, great that you were able to move yours out. 230 seedlings? I thought I had a lot, but "only" about 140. :-)

I actually got the pots for free last year. They are just regular pots in trays that fit the pots. I helped a charity with it's planting last year and all the volunteers got to choose some plants from the greenhouse that was donating them (this was June and the greenhouse was about to throw them all out). Some of the flowers I chose came in these pots with the trays. If I'd known how much I would love them, I would have gotten more. Maybe I'll get a chance this year, too. You can see behind I've got loose pots in sterilite containers and just the normal seed starting cells/trays on the window ledge.
