I am so thrilled with the new greenhouse! Look at those veggies GROW! These four large galvanized tubs are filled with rich potting soil, then planted with tomatoes, eggplants, squash, cucumbers and lettuce. I also planted some sweet allysum to encourage some beneficial insect visits as soon as the weather warms enough. The tubs are holding the moisture well so far.
On the right side, more tomatoes (heirlooms) paired with a variety of peppers, and more lettuce. The little three inch peat pots are planted with several kinds of seeds including some cilantro, peas, summer squash. They are starting to sprout now, but are still small.
Here is one of my big mixed planters. I wonder if the squash will require more water than the tomato will, so this is an experiment. I know that eggplants and tomatoes grow well together :)
Tomorrow I will plant my little celery starts. I tried some last year, but I really neglected them. This year I will try harder!
It smells rich and sweet inside, it smells like spring!
We are one step closer to self~sufficiency...
