* Under water resin

These ones are kind of silly, but I still like them.  Tiny rubber toys molded in an ice cube tray.  The shark’s fin sticking out was a happy accident from them floating a little before the resin set.

* Seedling hardener

Posted on April 1st, 2018 by maitreya. Filed under Home and Garden.


I’m trying to do all my own seeds starts this year.  My main problem with this in previous years was that the plants would mostly have issues after transplant, which was probably because I wasn’t taking enough care with hardening them off.  It’s so much work, though!  I came across these instructions for hardening off plants for people with jobs, which I am hoping will solve my problems.  The idea is to put them outside under 4 mil plastic that somewhat but not entirely blocks UV, but also has some ventilation so they don’t roast.  I just stapled the plastic to my old chicken tractor, which we haven’t used in a while for its original purpose.  I’m testing it out with some artichoke, scallion, and alpine strawberry starts, so fingers crossed!
