I found this link for making mini greenhouses out of sterilite containers. I thought it was a neat idea.
Mini Greenhouse

I use a 58 quart Sterilite container as a window box greenhouse. On the outside I taped a black trash bag to the bottom going about 3 inches up the sides. On the inside, I put foil across the back and on the sides going down towards the front at an angle. I set it up against my sunniest window and put clear plastic over the top. My seedlings loved it. This year I might have to make a couple more, I got a little carried away buying seeds. lol

How come we don't see more of you around here? (And don't say "always2shy" ...nobody seems to stay inhibited for very long, after they hang out here for a while!) [Linked Image]
Jump in & tell us some more of your great ideas!

Thanks guys.

Patty, I'm always here. I don't post much but I spend alot of time lurking in the background checking out what others are saying.

I have no more great ideas but if you want to get lost in another website checkout the Mother Earth News Article Archive. There are articles that go clear back to 1970. You can find some interesting gardening tips there.
