Seed starting station..

Post  BackyardBirdGardner on 1/23/2011, 2:32 pm

As promised, here are some pics of the indoor station my dad built for my mom in the early 80's. He slapped this together over a Saturday morning he told me this past weekend when we went down to visit him. It's pretty simple in it's design, but I couldn't do this over a weekend, much less half a Saturday.

Anyway, the pics aren't the best, and I modified it to become a seed starter. I bought the chain to lower the lighting down closer to the plant trays. This was originally used to hold hanging baskets over the winter...never for seed starting. But, I think it will work well with the lighting so close to the seedlings now.

The unit is about 10 feet long and about 7 feet high to give you an idea of it's size.

I moved it to another wall today to make room for all the Cmas decorations we took down....finally. And, I am itching so bad to get it up and running that I think I'm starting to chafe... Embarassed
