I mentioned yesterday that Shane had planted some veggie seeds in starter pots, but what I didn't mention was this neat-o growing rack I received to review from CSN Stores.
First, I have to say that, as always, I got great customer service from CSN Stores. Upon ordering, I was informed that I would receive tracking information by 3/4/11 and would receive the item on or about 3/7/11. I was very pleasantly surprised when the tracking information came on 3/2/11 and the item arrived on 3/4/11; both were days earlier than expected.
The rack itself is great. It goes together without the need for tools. All the pieces simply slip together or nest on top of each other. The rack is lightweight, but sturdy. As soon as the weather gets a little warmer, I'll be able to move it out onto the back deck (and back in, when needed) by myself. The clear plastic cover fits easily over the top of the rack and has a double-zippered front for easy access to plants for watering or moving.
This growing rack is a little bigger than I thought. Although the dimensions were in the listing, it still appears larger than I anticipated. With four uniform shelves, it is more functional and more attractive, I think, than the baker's rack we used last year for the same purpose.
All in all, I would recommend the Juliana 5-Tier Growing Rack to anyone wanting to get a jump start on this year's garden. I'd also recommend CSN Stores for all your online shopping needs.
