greenhouse

today as we filled the last empty space in the greenhouse Brian, one of the guys working to make our shareholder's vegetables happen, said. 'its really something how the plants are growing, you should post a picture everyday so people can see it.'

In at least concept that was a good idea. Here's a snapshot taken with my phone. tomorrow I'll try one with my camera and see if I can do a better job of it.

I haven't gone out there and counted each flat but a good guess is that's between 50,000 and 60,000 seedlings growing in the greenhouse. The long tables on the outside are heated. The new trays with recently planted seeds go there where the soil stays at about 80 degrees.

Once the seedlings are up and growing we put the trays on the middle tables which are at room temperature (in the daytime with the solar heat of the greenhouse we try not to let it go over 90 degrees. At night it drops to about 50).

We started planting back in mid February.
