Lucy the puggle dog and I thought we’d give you a little tour around the greenhouse today and show you what’s growing.
Creepy Gnome Guy’s job this year is to protect the greenhouse. Last year he was stationed in the broccoli patch and the year before he protected the peas from the squirrels.
The chive border is coming in nicely and the tulips are about a week away from blooming.
So far we have spinach in the top gutter and romaine lettuce in the lower gutter. I think I’ll plant some toy choy in the two middle gutters later this week.
What do you think? Maybe a month to go before we are serving Cesar salads?
Lemon the lemon tree is hanging in there and we are starting to harden off a bunch of vegetable and flower flats. I think in another few weeks I’ll try and move all the heirloom tomato plants out to the greenhouse. We’ll see.
And last but not least, round 2 of the cabbage starts.
Yep, I’d say things are looking pretty good for this time of year. Warming temps, no snow or other wacky weather to speak of and plenty of sticks to chew on. What more could a girl and her dog ask for?
Life is good.
If you are thinking about growing food in a greenhouse but don’t know how to get started, you should check out Elliot Coleman’s book Four-Season Harvest: Organic Vegetables from Your Home Garden All Year Long. I think it’s pretty awesome.
