200 year-old house on 25 rocky acres in high country upstate NY and SO many highbush blueberries!

Here's the new seed starting shelves next to my wood-toting hand truck for comparison. All in the room I'm thinking of converting to a workroom. Last summer I slept in this room. These shelves are huge, they must be 4 feet long and on wheels. And, it all works! The fixtures have spaces for fluorescent bulbs and incandescent bulbs, the trays have drain plugs and, and, ... all for 50 bucks! Craigslist rocks!
Oh, and I just got the seeds that I will be starting in them! You can see them leaning up on one of the fluorescent fixtures. Good point Mama Pea - I need to go through these seeds and calculate when to start them by backing off from when I want to put them in the ground. Shouldn't just start everything in March like I did last year. Hm.
I had a nice afternoon. Since I was going into the city to get the plant stand, I stopped and bought a few baskets to make up for the fact that I don't have any closets, and then met someone for a couple beers in town. Now I'm back home and I think I'm going to make my second attempt at mozzarella cheese. The first attempt looked good at the beginning, but slumped overnight into flatness. This time I'm going to try more rennet. Wish me cheesy luck!
