How did the new seed starting shelf turn out?

Not only does the worn barn wood look nice but the height is just right to slide the indoor chick brooder under which is about to be booted up any day now.

This year I shared my seed order with a friend to bring the price own. I never plant 25 of the same plant. I am curious how much you spent of seeds this year. Also I am curious how many plants of what you are planning. P.S. I love what you do. If you need something to watch check out Tales from Green Valley from BBC on YouTube.
