I live in the northeastern United States where sunlight can be elusive even in early springtime. After a long, cold and snowy winter, gardeners are chomping at the bit to get digging and planting. The growing season is very short where I live, starting seeds early is a must. By the time the ground warms up enough it will be close to June 1st.
Starting seeds inside on a windowsill is not an option for me. My house is surrounded by very tall trees. I used to attempt to start vegetables indoors by moving my trays of little pots around all day to catch any rays of light I could find. That was ridiculous and time consuming, and then most of the seeds wouldn't do all that well anyway.
When I discovered this inexpensive, mini patio greenhouse I had to give it a try. I am so happy with it that I am sharing my success (with pictures) on this page.
