These are really cute, Susan. Such a timely reminder, too....I've already got seeds drying on the dining room table (it doesn't get much use this time of year for actual dinner LOL).

Linda, I've been trying to get my DH to help me get a good setup in the basement for overwintering plants for a few years, but he didn't want me taking all the plants to the basement. Year before last I moved my dining room furniture to the basement so I could overwinter my tropicals since we never use the diningroom anyway Big Grin DH put a stop to that mess (it was really bad) and set up a plywood board on some saw horses for me in the basement and then a y connection from the washer and small hose so I would have a water source. Thanks to my dear friend for teaching me failure isn't all bad. Now I have a great area to overwinter plants Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing

Too funny, Susan. My DH was actually willing to help me get set up with lights, etc. in the basement. It keeps me out of his way Hilarious! It's a great place to overwinter plants and start seeds in the spring.

Only downside is we don't have a sink down there, so lots of lugging watering cans up and down stairs. We're rectifying that in the next few weeks, though. YAY!

Yea Linda you gotta have water. One year I saved empty milk jugs and kept filling them up and carrying them down, what a pain. I couldn't get the hose off the washing machine water faucet and DH wouldn't help. The dining room set up was all it took for me to get a great little overwinter area in the basement. Guess your DH wants the dining room back Big Grin I don't think they like looking at the mess. I have floressant lights hanging but still need to get them to the electric.

Delis and restaurants throw away a lot of 4 gallon tubs. Cleaned throughly, they will store a lot of water in a small space.

A big laundry detergent jug with the cap on and bottom cut off makes a good water scoop. That plus a big funnel lets you fill watering cans of gallon milk jugs.

I pulled a clean garden hose into the growing area indoors, filled all the 4-gallon tubs, and then didn't need the hose again for a long time.

But clean them well first!

I actually got a utility sink installed in our basement this past winter. I am a very happy camper now that I am no longer lugging water, and even happier that I don't have to lug all of my dirty pots/trays upstairs to be washed in the utility sink in the laundry room. Hurray!

On the basement room we have a large room WITH a sink and even a bathroom next to it there's a 50s fridge metal cabinets stove and space heater the stove and space heater "shouldn't" be connected but my mom is kinda "don't touch it "just incase it's leaking" I mean? Really? If that stove IS leaking then guess what? Withought someone messing with it we will NEVER know and the house could EXPLODE! The whole room is a bad bad mess the sink looks like a huge mess I suspect the fridge (it's about a full size for the era a green I think ge) still works because there was a cool breeze when I opened it and NO mold in it that I saw --this thing is museum quality preserved or nearly there's a few small rust spots nothing over about 1/16" I'd guess it'd be perfect for seed storage and there's metal cabinets thatd do well to hold supplies and such but no not good enough for ms perfect who ONLY wants to grow pretty crap that WON'T sustain you

On seed packs I try to make my own as often as I can I have even had a few designs that I've used in the past and have come up with
