Honestly, it’s not as bad as it sounds. I am referring to the milk jugs and the new light rack I am using to grow seedlings for my garden. When I found myself asking my garden pals this weekend if they wanted to see my jugs and my rack, I got a few laughs but I didn’t realize how totally funny it sounded until a male garden pal laughed and said, “Yes, I want to see your jugs and your rack!” Oh, geez, this is a slightly dirty spin on my garden projects — which are dirty to begin with!
The exciting news is that my experiment of using milk jugs as little greenhouses has sprouted success. Thank you to hometown Wisconsin friend Maggie Strunk Leyes for inspiring me. Here are two jugs with little sprouts inside:
I am also stoked about my new grow lights which arrived via Amazon last week and have been shining on my happy crop of tomatoes, eggplant and peppers. The green glow of the lights has prompted some to ask if I’m growing marijuana plants. But, although it is legal to grow 6 pot plants per adult in Colorado, I am not growing weed.
