Garden: Starting Seedlings

I used a discarded zip container that a comforter was in and an unused Rubbermaid container to start an indoor greenhouse. I used peat pots and seeds gleaned from last fall's bounty. In a week, the seeds have started to sprout! I placed it inside in a sunny window.

An even easier idea would be to take a Rubbermaid container bin with it's lid. Turn it upside down so the lid is on the bottom. Place your seedlings, in peat pots or whatever small pots you use, on the top. Ths snap the bottom part of the bin on it and set the whole thing in a sunny window or under a sun lamp. This would do the same thing without using the comforter bag.

What a great dose of spring. Can't wait to see things in bloom.

What a great idea! I hate throwing out containers in case they can be used, and yours is a terrific idea for a portable, re-re-re-usable hothouse!
