Filled the Greenhouse today!

It was quite nice to do something other than work today. Started the greenhouse this morning with some really great seed. You have to love Baker Creek Farms and Botanical Interest. The wife was wondering about the beans, peas corn etc...

She has no clue and says I am bringing her back to the 1800's. Gotta love it. This time around I should be able to supply 3 gardens about the size of mine. 80x100'. I am trying a few different things just as I did last year.

Two different types of hot peppers, Bell peppers including a sweet chocolate. Three types of melons, tomatoes, strawberries, and blue berries. Okra, asparagus, yellow squash,eggplant, three types of cucumber, red onions, white onions. Grow shallots year round down here. All I can say is I can't wait until spring.

I will plant the speckle butter beans, peas, corn etc. in the spring. Remember, Wide, deep rows. I hope you all have a great planting season.

I love you all my friends. Happy planting.

Jim

That is sweet

music to my ears. If you can provide for your own food and water everything else is minor.

Just one last kick in the nuts, then a final deathblow

How wonderful to have a greenhouse.

Have you had it in previous seasons? Anything you've learned that you were surprised by?

I built it last year.

It is not very big but I learned last year it does not take much. This one is 4'x8'x2'. I bought a $18.00 electric heater with a $65 thermostat this year. I am not using the grow lights this year. I pulled it outside and going to try just using the sun for light. I had good success last year and truly expect it to be better this one.

Something half this size could get anyone started with replanting in pots that lives in an apartment. For that matter anyone with a spare bedroom could grow all they need in their house.

This is not work. It gives a little love back when you put them in the pot.LOL It also teaches patients.
