Hardening off the babies

Post  camprn on 5/25/2010, 6:57 am

Hardening off has commenced. All the plants have been moved outside and I am dismantling the lights today! Hooray, I can have my dining room back in order after months of being a nursery. Very Happy

Think of it this way: When you are enjoying the fruits of your labors in your dining room, your plants will have come full circle! lol! (Seriously, though, that's great!)

Camprn, I do know what you mean. When they were little, they fit in two cute little trays. But then they grew.....well, I don't mean to complain, that is what I was hoping they would do, but it is nice to get them in the ground. I did a lot of trekking back and forth, putting them out, bringing them in.....etc.....etc.....etc......

Yes, how grand to have them in the ground at last.
I started with one small 2-foot grow light, then bought a 4-ft shop light with sunlight bulbs.
As the seedlings were transplanted into larger pots, I had to buy a 3rd and even a fourth 4-ft light set.
My quilting tables were covered with garden lights, pots, planting soil, watering pitcher, etc.

It was a wonderful experience starting my own seeds. I'd never done this before. I'll be doing it again next year, that's for sure.
Now its all cleaned off, the transplants are in and the fall seeds can be sown directly into the garden so I won't need the shop lights til next fall.
Hooray!

last year I started from seed, and had a small amount of success. This year is the first year I really have a garden started from seeds - about 90% - and it's a great feeling!

I'm glad it's not just me, my hubby thinks I'm a little nuts when I skip around the house cos another little lettuce has poked his head through the ground. It's so exciting.
