Little Sprouts and a Giveaway
March 9, 2010
I have a really hard time staying focused at Lowes, or any home improvement store for that matter. Asking me to go into a home improvement store and pick up only one particular thing is pretty much like asking a kid to ignore the cookie jar on the counter. It ain’t happening. I start meandering down aisles, dreaming up projects, then all of a sudden I’ve disappeared into a vortex. I’ve forgotten why I was there in the first place, daylight has disappeared, and they’ve sent out a search party.
Such is the story of this little purchase two weeks ago. I was at Lowes to purchase something simple like sanding pads, then before I knew it I was in the garden department again. It was there that a ‘Jiffy’ Greenhouse stared me down and beckoned me toward him. He somehow convinced me with his $6 dollar price tag and numbered tutorial that he needed me. Or I needed him. Apparently, I didn’t need to use the egg cartons I’ve used in the past to start my sprouts. This year, I needed a ‘Jiffy’ Greenhouse.
Tomatoes, basil, and delphinium are three of my favorite things to grow. So I thought I’d get a head start on a few of my garden essentials.
I watered the funny little soil pellets.
Planted my seeds. Got my fingers dirty.
Placed my greenhouse in the window, and ten days later – sprouts !
Will wonders never cease. :-)
