I had to go for a blood test today. The annoying kind where you have to eat a special diet for 3 days then fast the night before, then get stuck 3 times over 2 hours.. you know the bad annoying kind. When I was finally free, I walked outside to call the hubby as we were going to go for breakfast. I then noticed that a few doors down from the blood place the discount store was having a 40% off closing down sale. So I called the hubs (who I woke who had gone back to sleep, and told him id be dropping in there to check stuff out). I went in with my eye on a set of LED white lights that I want to hang outside under our deck over the spa. Picked up two boxes of 160 stringed lights for $35.94. I then started looking around for anything else that might be worthwhile and found a garden section. I picked up a ‘mini greenhouse’ for $23.97. That’s right under $25 bucks. I was thrilled.
So after we went and had our breakfast, I came home and assembled this beauty. Super easy to assemble. I put it in the spot where I have been growing my seedlings in trays on a small table. And it went to work. It was super sunny today, but also really chilly due to a super cold wind. You can see the good that it was doing already keeping those seedlings nice and snug.
Here is a shot with the ‘door’ rolled up. The top tier I have my lettuce seedlings, some tomatoes and some newly planted tomatoes, chillies and eggplant. The second tier down I have my spinach and capsicum seedling tray and some jiffy pots that have yet to turn into seedlings. I am starting to think they won’t as it has been a few weeks now.

A closer look at the top and middle tier.
My super awesome spinach seedlings. They are getting planted tomorrow when I finish building their climbing frame. I have much hope of those, much much hope (and many recipes!).
