Everyone I know keeps asking me, “What are you growing in your greenhouse?” So for this post, I thought I’d try something different: less words and more pictures.
First, this is the greenhouse/potting shed. I started most of the seeds in February. This, of course, depends on the seeds. I will break up the planting schedule based on germination time, bloom time, and last frost date. See the Library page for my guidebooks. There is a space heater in there, as well as heat mats for the seedlings. I have hung plastic to keep the heat in the growing area; the other area is for storage of yard equipment. The best times are when it’s snowing outside, and I’m in the shed in 75 degrees. There is no running water, so I carry water in.
This has been a cool spring, so the heater has stayed on longer than usual, especially at night. In warmer weather, I take down the plastic, open the Dutch door, and realease heat out of the vents up top.
I purchased the seeds through Park Seed. Usually, I purchase seeds through a variety of sources, but this year I felt the need to simplify and save some money. Ordering from less catalogs meant less shipping and handling charges.
Now for the seedlings. Hope you enjoy them!
