What to do in isolation? Part 2

Stay at home dude: We are since 2 weeks in isolation and really enjoying the sun on our balcony. Nights are still cold but now is the perfect time to grow some tomato and cucumber plants. To give the plants perfect conditions, I use two Flex mini led lights which I do not use for my aquascape at the moment. I installed them on a small aluminium rail which is attached to a small wooden angle. I use two small green houses from Elho which are cheap and have a good ventilation system.

The light is on for 12 hours per day and after 2 weeks I count over 200 small plants.

I will start singling the plants now and plant them into small pots. As the amount of plants is so big, I will share them with our neighbours. Who knows how much longer the isolation stands, at least we will have plenty of tomatoes and cucumbers. Stay healthy and stay at home! Your stayathomedude.

What to do in isolation? Part 1

Hi all currently staying at home in quarantine. Some of you might ask yourself what to do at home whilst the Corona crisis. As you know I have some experience staying at home for a long time and want to share some ideas that might keep you busy at home.

Get your tools organized

Some of you might have some power tools and other equipment at home. Staying at home is a great time to reorganize your stuff. My daughter loves to help me getting things sorted and has her own box to play. I very much like the FIXtainer boxes from Fischer. I bought them here. They can be stacked together and can be carried around. Because the lid of the box is transparent it is very easy to keep a good overview about all the small stuff you have.

These boxes are a great way to organize any smaller items like screws, hooks or wall plugs.

In our apartment there is always something to fix. Install a new door lock, place a new wardrobe for the little one or just simply install a new lamp. The boxes help me to find all the stuff I need for the job.

The boxes can be stacked and easy be carried around

If you wonder what to do at home, order some of these FIXtainer boxes and start organizing all the small stuff you own. Stay healthy and stay at home! Your stayathomedude.
