Greenhouse Activities- 1st Week of Spring

Some greenhouse helpers. Philip-Edouard, Francie, Andi & Gerry do some precision planting and transplanting. We were planting various greens, beets, broccoli, lettuce, and even a few radish for an early salad. This is only the tip of the iceberg as there are about 50 trays of onions, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, ground cherries, tomatillos, and leeks at home under the lights to be transferrred around Easter.

Getting ready for spring!

Feb 28- Micheal stacking wood in the greenhouse. The greenhouse is almost ready for planting with its new door and a cleanup. Once the snow melts a bit more, the new plastic can go on. Everything will be up and running by Mid March. Drop by sometime to plant a few seeds and have a cup of tea in the greenhouse!
