Day 3-5 (3-14-21)
The frame is finished and the clear vinyl cover has been cut, taped and velcroed to my cart. It is now settled outside and already soaking up the sunlight.
“Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God.”

As I finish up my garden-starting project, I can see the beginning of new life sprouting from the seeds I planted less than a week ago. They push through the soil, reaching for the warmth of the sun, determined to spread their wings so-to-speak and soak in every bit of light that shines on them.
As a believer, my desire is to reach for the warmth and light that is in Christ Jesus, spread my wings and pour out the evidence of His love in my life. To truly live a life that follows in His footsteps, I should grow in Him every day, reaching out my arms to others and sharing His love with them.
I have finally finished my garden cart and it is now a mini mobile greenhouse. Since the weather is still unpredictable in my area, I am currently bringing my cart in every night to ensure that nothing freezes. Through the layers of thick plastic table covering, the sun warms and gives light to my little seedlings even when the weather is still a bit too cold for these baby sprouts. The best thing is, it was a relatively cheap and easy project that can be reused year after year.
Though I already had some of the items I needed here at home, I have set up a breakdown of the cost to help you prepare should you decide to create your own garden cart green house this spring.
$40 three shelf rolling metal cart -Walmart
$3 two spray bottle pack -walmart
$7 large plastic watering can-Walmart
$12 (aprox) PVC and connectors-Lowes
$4 white duct tape
$6.99 (per yard) of 16 gage clear vinyl for cover- Joanns (I used 3 yards)
$13 double sided velcro - Joann
$2 garden labels - dollar tree
$10 red vinyl - Walmart
To check out my cart making process (and perhaps have a laugh at my expense) watch my YouTube video.
Here are a few photos of my cart garden upon completion for your viewing pleasure and crafting inspiration. I will be updating you as the plants continue to grow and I pray everything survives and thrives through the spring and summer.
