Moving out

The tomato/capsicum/chilli seedlings were taking over the house so I decided it was time for them to move out.

The balcony is ideal for this purpose. Line the trellis with leftover polycarbonate sheeting, put another sheet on the floor (to protect it from all the water) and move the plant stand over to hold all the boxes. Cover the boxes with a plastic sheet overnight and during cooler days. Take it off on warm, sunny days. So far they seem to be happy in their new home.

I reckon the combination of sunlight, warmth and fresh air will bring them on a treat. Like a mobile hothouse...maybe you could add wheels ;)

Gee, thanks. ;) You do make sure I won't run out of projects. Hothouse on wheels!

Meant to take down the old shed today so that I can start on the raised beds, but the gale force winds are a bit scary in combination with corrugated iron sheets.

Flying gnome alert!!
