    It's official my greenhouse is ready and waiting. Tomorrow every plant moves in. I have made 3 mini hot houses for my seedlings. They each have rope lighting on the bottom and I have been able to maintain 60* - 80* temps night and day. One of the minis are full of propagated cuttings that need heat. The open rack is for anything that likes it cooler. You can see my broccoli and cauliflower still wicking. I hope to get them and sugar snaps in the ground next week. The white bag is forcythia cuttings. The bubble wrap, the rope lighting and the wicking are working like a charm so far. The rope lighting is the old kind not the led lights. So when it quits I will be upset.
