You ever buy any comforter sets? They come in those nice clear plastic bags with the zippered top. They make excellent micro mini portable greenhouses for hardening your seedlings.
I had a piece of hard cardboard that I used to make a bottom so that the plants wouldn’t fall over when I moved the little greenhouse. Then I eyeballed an aluminum pan that would hold the cups, so in they went. And I knew I didn’t want 100 percent of the sun’s rays beaming down on these babies that have hardly ever left home, so I wrapped the aluminum pan in another plastic bag for insulation. And because I didn’t want the plastic to collapse on top of the seedlings I happened to glance over and saw the homemade plant markers. I grabbed a few of them and stuck them in the four corner pots and a couple in the middle.
Viola…micro mini portable greenhouse.
Yeah, I know it looks a little ghetto, but it serves a purpose. It’s easy to pick up and move around the yard. You can unzip it to let in a little air when it’s warm.
On second thought, it looks a lot ghetto, but it still serves a purpose. It’s eco-friendly (recycle and repurpose) and the price is right. Economical savviness at work again.
You could get real fancy and put some permanent supports in the corners. I didn’t have the time or the energy to make it pretty. I’ll save that for another day.
