Tour of my INDOOR Seed growing and Starting Station!
I live in New England, which is the NORTH EAST COAST of the United States, and our growing season is really End of April to Mid October, most years. That's typically 170 or so growing days outside. BUT I like to get a head start, a little JUMP on my growing season.

Like many in my area, I start my seeds indoors, sometimes 2 or 3 months in advance, before transplanting them outside. Any seeds and seedlings, that take longer, get started inside.

I START Onions, Pepper, many Herbs like Oregano, Basil, Parsley, Mint, Thyme, Celery, and more. I start zucchini, eggplant, squashes, and cucumbers, too.

Not only vegetables. I also plant flowers: Bachelors Button, Marigold, Zinnia, Nasturtium, Sunflowers, and more!

Tomato on the right, Peppers on the left!

Getting an extra few weeks of growing, means, by the time I transplant outside, my seedlings are healthier, stronger, and able to bear vegetables that much sooner!


Consider Subscribing on Youtube, if you help me grow, I can help you grow!

It really helps me out if you subscribe to my YouTube Channel...
...and of course, if you SHARE the Video, too!

MANY Thanks!

Check out this video and take a look at HOW I start seeds indoors. I have a space and many shelves. Let's take a quick tour of my shelves, wiring my lights and the heat mats, the fan, the seed starter station, and more! CHECK out WHERE I sow my seeds inside, and also, my most important gardening tip: SIFTING SEED STARTER! !



Most of you know, I prefer to grow my own food, locally. It's healthier for my family, and for the planet. I know what goes into my foods, and what chemicals are NOT in my food. Also, It cuts down on carbon emissions, less trucking, planes, trains, and boats, to get fresh foods to my table.

And that makes me smile... better for the planet, better for my own family.

Having my own start station is one of my dreams, I wish I could make it this year. By the way, I like your setup.

thank you.
You know I didnt start this way. I started with a small light. Added more lights each year. Added heat mats, too. It happens over time. start small, and add as you can

Thank you for the ideas. Have a nice day ahead.

That's a good set up, we all have to think about doing our starters soon, it's way less expensive than buying them these days

It's VERY Expensive buying the finished groceries, and even buying small plants is a lot of money now. Seeds are fairly cheap for a package. It's the best way to get started.

@bluefinstudios Excellent growing strategy for healthier plants.

thanks!

Wow! Very nice work. You’ll always have fresh vegetables.

I lvoe having fresh food for my family.. and this is a big part of it.

170 or so growing days outside

!!! wow I didn't realize how much longer your growing season is. Ok I researched and my growing season is longer than I thought lol but you still have a couple of extra weeks for sure.

And that makes me smile... better for the planet, better for my own family.

And thats what its all about. We all need more of the things that make us smile and less of ... well everything else 🙂

Napping Area! Good luck moving Tucker lol. I have two napping area 😁 one upstairs, one on the main floor depending on the sunlight, temperature, how my back is feeling... or maybe I should be having this discussion with Tucker since he is the resident napping expert.

Tucker certainly is a SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT on napping.
Even though I have 170 growing days, that only really counts for certain things. Peppers and Tomato finish end of Sept. Usually the last 4-6 weeks are basically for growing cabbages, sprouts, greens, and some potato. None of the really warm weather stuff.

It looks great and at the same time your crop seems to be inside a spaceship hahaha like in fiction movies. I'm growing oregano for now, I'll see if I increase other species. Greetings

If is was you, I would definitely try and add more! The more the merrier, they say!

I'm working on that, except that I have a mix between garden and spice plants, and I would like to plant some tomatoes. I'll see where I get to, I'm at an initial point.

Keep us posted with pics, too!

Ok, I will do, thanks for the attentions
