Greenhouse, Greenhouse, Greenhouse!!!

Howdy ya'll!
It has been such a mild winter.  While the kids missed the snow tubing, snowmen, and extra reasons to consume hot chocolate.  We have been using the favorable weather to get some field work accomplished.  

 Today the peppers are being seeded and already you can see tomatoes, swiss chard, eggplant, broccoli, broccoli rabe, and romaine sprouting in the greenhouse.

Eggplants, swiss chard, broccoli, tomatoes

  Eric and Dallas use the handy dandy vacuum seeder for seeding the peppers.

 Each tray heads back through the flat filler to cover the seed and a lite sprinkle of water.
  Then down the greenhouse and on the germination bed. For germination our seeds like to be extra warm, so we have a special part of the house with a little extra heat and a big insulated blanket. 

We are so thankful for every sunny day we get right now.
