boys' room with tomato plants etc

The number of plants in my kitchen has reached capacity. It still isn't warm enough to put things in the greenhouse. It was then that hubby hit on the brilliant idea of bringing the greenhouse table indoors to the boys' room.

I hope they don't mind too much, But Josh just recently told us how plants are good for us because they breath out oxygen : )

I also managed to get my hands on some more seed trays so tomorrow I will be sowing again.

This morning was orchid potting time. My neighbour, Wayne, dropped over yesterday with an unwell Dendrobium and Oncidium that he didn't want so I re-potted them this morning. So two new orchids for me. Thanks, Wayne : )

Building a den for the boy's on Babies Hill is the solution, then the boy's could always move out once their room is full of plants. I'm sure these orchids will flourish under your care.
