Plant Light Update

Seeds were started this weekend. The gardening goddess spent Sunday planting seeds in the flats while I turned soil in the garden.

We are starting the garden a bit late this year. We’ve already missed planting onions. According to the gardening goddess, they should have been in pots and under the plant light by the end of February.

The plant light received a few updates this year. First, we installed new light fixtures (last years lights are now hanging in my pole barn).

I added dowel to hang the lights from. Since the chain wraps over the dowel, it is easy to adjust the height of the lights. Last year, we ran a chain from one site to the other and hang the lights from that. It was a chore to raise and lower the lights. There is the added benefit of being able to slide the lights to one side to water the plants. Also, dowel, being solid, holds the light fixtures more securely.

I just drilled a 3/8 inch hole into each pole and inserted the dowel then attached the stand to the sand and water table.

The sand and water table plans are here, and here is a link to last years plant light assembly.
