The Rusted Garden Show EP 2:
Building Simple Inexpensive Grow Lights & Seed Starting Herbs

In addition to my short focused videos all about vegetable gardening, I will be doing an ongoing long format video series called The Rusted Garden Show. It will be packed full of information and the topics will be relevant in real time to what is going on with gardening in Maryland Zone 7. It is also available for free as a podcast, just search The Rusted Garden on ITunes or at 

The Rusted Garden Show EP 2 teaches you how to build simple and inexpensive grow light stations. I show you several designs and explain how to use the lights to grow strong transplants. I also show you how to seed start herbs and onions using my over seeding method.  Please use the table of contents to move through the EP 2 as it will show up below on the video description.
