A New Top!

We will miss you Chuck!
The greenhouse is getting a new film covering.  This will allow a lot more light to reach the plants and help productivity.  A crew is meeting this Saturday at 8:30.  If you can come help, bring cordless power tools and staplers.  There will be chili and soup as well as other goodies. 
There are many things growing at the greenhouse.  Lettuce, mustard greens, spinach, pak choi, kale, arugula, broccoli raab, and swiss chard are all in the beds.  We have had a difficult time getting the seedlings going because we have a mouse! or two!  The mouse is digging up the seeds we have planted and replacing them with melon seeds.  If only we could train it!  We are using plastic covers to help protect the seedlings. 
We have been picking the baby arugula and mizuna and the lettuce will soon need thinning.
We have a new manager, Chris and he has been working with us Wednesday and Thursday mornings between 9 and 12 AM.  We have had a steady crew of workers over the last two months.
