My Greenhouse & What's growing on the shelves!


My brother-in got me a small greenhouse for christmas- I'm making full use of it & have planted lots of seeds & moved tender seedlings inside to protect from the weather- here is what I have planted- Pepper seeds, tomato seeds (2 varieties), love in a puff, purple pea vine?, passiflora, hisbiscus, daylily, morning glories, pink carnation, & a seed that is flat with paper thin tan outside. & maybe more...most were seeds from 2011 season...


Oh and the reason I have concrete slabs on the bottom shelf & on the sides is to keep the wind from blowing my greenhouse over...

on the top shelf -only 1 seedling tray is sprouting-
I have 2 varieties of Tomatoes- yellow pear tomatoe & Big Rainbow Tomato..I do not know which is which except one has sprouted well & the other is slower...



On the Middle Shelf- only 1 seedling tray is sprouting-
Morning Glories, Noid, Tye Dye, Pink Blush & Clark's Heavenly Blue are sprouting.




on the bottom shelf-
I have a tray that has 2 seedlings coming up I forgot what it was.


Mom gathered some seed from a bush she calls flaming bush (also known as burning bush) 2 years ago & I planted them, the following spring/summer-nothing..also known as burning bush..now - 5 are sprouting so far (it only looks like 4, 1 was stuck in the seed & I helped remove the seed...



Lilac cuttings & 1 burning bush cuttings

I hope so, I'm keeping the greenhouse zipped up today, as long as it is raining, they don't need to drown.

I learned how to do that here on this site, It's called a 'Forsythe' Pot. There is a thread about it on here somewhere.
