I discovered a new blog today called “My Wisconsin Outdoor Journal“, written by one of my facebook friends, Jeff Evraets. Like many of us, he is getting a jump-start on his garden by starting his seedlings indoors under lights- but he has found a really neat way to provide extra heat using rope lights. What an awesome idea since these lights do put off quite a bit of heat.
Take a look at the complete post entitled, “DIY Light Stand and Heat Mat” at his blog. I’ll be up in my attic tomorrow digging out MY rope lights to try my hand at a heat mat! Thanks Jeff!!
