My garden is still having technical difficulties despite much warmer temps. Please stand by.

Funny thing is it did better thrown out as scrap in my bed then it did when I actually tried to grow it. Maybe I had the wrong timing, or wrong soil mix?
Anyways, spring is around the corner so I have been getting excited. Bought a bunch of seeds, and been buying plants here and there because I get impatient and just want to have plants instead of wait for seeds to sprout lol!
Although I am really trying to sprout quite a bit of stuff. We picked up this really cheap walk in greenhouse from amazon for like 60 bucks, and I am very happy with it! It was so cheap and it actually fits quite a bit of seedlings, and it's staying quite a bit warmer than outside air. Probably a good hot and humid 75-80 in there with outside temps being around 50.
That's the cheap ol thing but I love it!

It's actually really nice and I wish I bought more of these pots because only the strawberry plant itself is in the soil, the foliage and fruits hang outside of it so they don't rot on the soil.

Not that big of an issue really but it's there. It's actually hard to find hay mulch around here, you can go to the feed store and buy feed hay, but it's likely got a lot of weed seed in it too. Once again, not an issue I guess if you stay on stop of picking them out.
