Every year I try to start some seeds and they never really do that well.  Partly because I don't have a bright space to put them inside the house, and also because I hate all the work of putting them outside during the day and bringing them in at night.  This year we splurged on a greenhouse!  Yeah, well, it was only $20 and is teeny, but it's still technically a greenhouse!  (We got it at Tractor Supply Co, in case you were wondering)

So far I really like it!  For the small amount of seeds I start, I think it will work really well. 

I got the idea to use toilet paper and paper towel rolls as seed pots from one of my favorite blogs, Squash Blossom Farm.  They seem to be doing the job!   The nice part is when I plant, I can either plant the whole thing, or just tear the cardboard away!

So far I've planted hollyhocks and 3 kinds of tomatoes.  I need to get started on the other things soon. 

Every day I cheer on the tomatoes.  Grow, babies, grow!
