It is March now in the mountain region and as you have it....we should be prepared for 70 degree days and three feet of snow. We need cozy plastic seedling containers installed to stop toddlers from dumping their contents unto cement just for the cruel pleasure of destruction after weeks of careful cultivation and indoor quarters to all hide from the snow mounds developing outside. This is they time of year where we are blessed to get our water supply and to hopefully decrease chances of another horrible fire season where the sky turns orange and rains ash.
Sometimes I feel like the seedlings get more attention and walks than the dog. So, what is the plan and we will see if said toddlers and Colorado can rally together to destroy it?
Enter, our new temporary green house and seed starting area. We have talked for years about building a green house on the south side of our house and use the thermal brick and landscaping stone as additional capturers of heat in this southwest facing location seemly perfect for capturing the solar heat. The one issue, an egress window popping out in the middle of this spot that seems to ruin any plans for permanent placement of a greenhouse at this time. Time will tell if we can bypass this obstacle but for now we are relying on this amazon greenhouse and our three cold frames as well as our seeding starting station in the furnace room.
