Now that the ladies out back are once again producing milk, I'm looking forward to ramping up my soap production. As each bar needs to "cure" (sit around in a well-ventilated area) for about 4 weeks before use, I need a pretty good amount of space to store the curing bars. My wonderful husband purchased me this new wire rack. It was 50-ish dollars on Home Depot's website, qualified for free shipping, and was easily assembled. It's hard to make out in the photo, but it's a brushed bronze, so I think it looks a little nicer than the shiny metal of most wire racks.
Since I don't currently have a lot of bars curing (the babies are still getting most of the milk) and since we'll soon be having company who will need the guest bed, I decided to move my seedlings from the bed to the rack. The grow lights are afixed to the shelf above and since the shelves are adjustable, I can easily move them to allow for plant growth.
Here's a look at my tomatoes today.
On the bottom rack, I've got my sweet potato starts . . .
. . . and starchy potato starts. Yes, I know I'm a little behind on getting my potatoes in the ground (they're supposed to be in by Valentine's Day, right?) but since there are currently 3 inches of snow on the ground outside, I'm gonna beat myself up about it. :)
Happy Snow Day!
