Saturday in the Greenhouse 2

Since I last wrote, we've had some cool temperatures and snow and then this week it finally seems like spring has arrived.   Daytime temperature inside the greenhouse has been up to +90 C and the vent and door have been open for awhile every afternoon.

I planted tomatoes, herbs and peppers into the seedling trays.  So far the tomatoes are up and the peppers are just peeking through.   It could be a scary thing transplanting these guys if they all grow!

Have you looked at seeds in the store lately?  Oh, my - the choices!  There was a whole line of new packages just for container gardens and Livingstone Seeds now has see-through packets so you can see how many seeds you are buying.   These little guys are a treat for my Dad, who loves sweet peas.

And our big project this week was planting more than 150 potatoes into bags!  There was a lot of mixing of dirt, filling of bags and shuffling to get them all settled inside the greenhouse.  They are growing like crazy already!
