Brain Hurricane!

Yesterday as I was visiting with The Man about the Greek tragedy that is his hot rod, I had a brain hurricane of epic proportions! I ordered some pepper seed this year. I’ve never started my own plants because I don’t have a good place to start them. All of my house plants have died since we moved here because when I have to bring them in during the winter I have no well lighted locales to put them in. I was determined to order these pepper seeds though! The little hamster wheel up in my brain was turning at mach speed to figure out a good way for me to start them. As The Man was deep in thought regarding The Dodge, an idea breezed through my head. What if I started them in an aquarium with a grow bulb in the hood? Will this work? Who the carp knows, but I’m going to give it a shot. I called my sister because I knew that she had an aquarium that used to house bullfrog spawn and was no longer in use. It just so happens that The Youngun is at her house today and I’ll be picking her up at a mutually agreed upon meeting place later this afternoon……SO……I’m going to get the aquarium.

The plan is to put some garden dirt (do I need starting medium or can I just go dig some of my nice rich garden dirt??) in the bottom of the aquarium, put the seeds in, turn ‘er on and let ‘er go! Will they grow? I surely do hope so. I’ll be bloggin’ more about this as the experiment progresses.

Till next time.................GOD BLESS FROM GOODWIFE FARM!
