MWT and I are in the throes of constructing a garden shed (more on that later...much later). We're building it for storage and to add interest to our property, but if we were in need of a greenhouse, I'd totally want to make one out of reclaimed

For some reason this reminds me of the commercial for the tiny burgers that are so cute.
My husband grew up on a farm. He professes to love his fruit trees and vegetable garden. Once he plants, that's about the end of it. I think he really just likes buying seeds. He may very well be the worst gardener/tree grower I've ever seen. This has tainted my desire to plant my own veggie garden, up until now. I'm ready to stake out my own Victory Garden this weekend. How fortuitous to come across
It took Cheft about $300 bucks in materials and a year and a half to gather the cast-off windows used to make his very own backyard greenhouse.
Materials: Four compact disc cases
1. Remove the front (the clear part) from three of the cases.
2. Tape or glue the three cases in a box shape, and then add the final case on the back, as in the photo.
3. Help your little seedlings thrive by placing the greenhouse over the plant, using the lid as necessary.
Give your seeds a little head start with this easy greenhouse on the fly.
- Wooden spoon
- Electric Drlll and 1/4" bit
- Seed-starting pots
- Loose soil
- Clear plastic container
1.) Drill holes into your plastic container for ventilation.
2.) Fill your pots with seed starting mix, and poke divets with the chopstick. Then, add your seeds.
