03-21 – Planting Tomatoes, Marigolds
This would be the largest crop planting of the year with tomatoes and most of the annual flowers planted in the seed flats. Beet, carrots, peas and radish are planted in bedding packs and placed in the hot bed to germinate. All of the seedlings planted earlier are now in bedding packs and in the hot bed.

Here are the seeds planted this week. I tend to plant small crops of lettuce, carrots, beets and radishes over a long period of time to insure a continuous harvest.

Green House
The greenhouse construction project is behind schedule. I had hoped to have it done by now, but many of the little things that go into its construction take longer than I anticipated. I hope to have it covered this weekend and ready for the early lettuce and pea crops.
