A greenhouse allows me to start growing year round! I do grow alot of things year round already!
A greenhouse will allow me to extend the season on most things I grow!
It may even be possible, that I could be eating Tomato's in December or January!
That gets me really excited!
I have already started seeds in my greenhouse! I wasted no time getting started.
I love using these large flats to start lettuces and greens. Once my lettuces are about 2 inches tall, I transplant out to the big garden.
Here is how I plant in large flats.
I use weed mesh to line the bottom of my flats,so none of my soil falls through the cracks. I reuse the pieces until they start to get holes and can't be used anymore.
I add my seed starting mix to the flat and then moisten the soil before I sow my seeds.
These are the seeds I will be sowing. Some Chard, Lettuce Blend, Arugula, Sweet Greens & Reds along with some Bloomsdale Spinach.
I sprinkle the seeds in sections, this way I have an idea of what is growing wear.
You can see the different seeds in the soil. I sprinkle a layer of soil across the top of the seeds and spray a mist of water over the top.
I am trying a new type of growing container this year. Every year I like to see what's new.
I am trying Planters Pride Fiber Grow containers. They are fully Biodegradable which I love! I am always in search of items to use in my Organic garden.
I will be starting Alpine Strawberries from seed in Fiber Grow Strips.
I will keep you posted on how they work out! I just added seed started mix and seeds and watered.
The Alpine Strawberry seeds were very tiny. I used tweezers to sow the seeds. I did 5 seeds per pot.
I have never grown them before. So I figured, I would sow 5 seeds cross my fingers and hope for the best!
I will keep you updated on the process of starting Strawberries from seed.
I also started some Cilantro.
Cilantro should sprout pretty quick. I use a ton of cilantro. I will be starting Cilantro every couple weeks. I have noticed that I have a few rouge Cilantro plants popping up in the main garden.
At least Cilantro seeds are a little bigger, no tweezers required for this seed. I put 4 seeds in each pot. They will go outside as soon as they are a couple feet tall.
My first greenhouse seed sow!
I am so excited! Can you tell!
I will have many more greenhouse shares as time goes by. I am sure it will be alot of trial and error as I get used to the temps in the greenhouse. I hope you are all ready for a fun new journey in the greenhouse!
