Greenhouse in Action!

We’ve moved many of our cooler season transplants into the new greenhouse from the Kroul farm. Some of the kohlrabi and lettuce got nipped by a few cold and wet days before they started heating their houses, but overall they look great and we have an early start on things. We have choi, kohlrabi, cabbage, broccoli, lettuce, kale, collards, turnips, and radishes going, as well as tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant that are still in the heated houses at Kroul’s. Yesterday, Seth and I built a really nice potting table for our greenhouse and were transplanting lettuces from their seeding trays to 48-cell transplant trays. Eve and Milo visited us that afternoon and Eve took pictures of the event.

    Kim,
    Thanks for checking it out. I don’t think I do it justice. When the really neat stuff happens, the camera is not around. See you soon!
