Just finished painting my back bedroom for the indoor garden. I bought the first shelving unit and put it up, although I only have onion and garlic chives in there. They have shot up since they’ve been in there, so all is good so far.
I removed the curtain from the single west window in there for maximum natural daylight.
This week I found a good artificial light source and bought all three on the shelf. Our stores here in Albuquerque have dramatically reduced inventory and are out of items for weeks. I hope these lights come in again soon, because I will want to start seeds soon. Yay! No seed starting in the kitchen window! This project is worth the trouble for that reason alone.
Since I finished painting yesterday, I zipped into Albuquerque this afternoon to buy the next two shelving units. Remembering that I purchased the only one on the shelf, I was hoping they would have reordered at least one in the size and color I needed. Nope. I went to another store to do the rest of my shopping for this week. I may have to order online for store pickup to avoid shipping charges on the ~60 pound items.
Darn! I am not yet used to our just-in-time inventory system turning into the just-wait-a-month system. The Baltic Shipping Index has fallen below its historic lows… merchandise is just not coming in.
Even though I hit a little snaggle on parts, I will get er done. I am excited about my new indoor garden!
