04-02 Planting Crops in the Greenhouse

Planting Crops in the Greenhouse
The completion of the greenhouse meant it was time to plant the first crops. I had seedlings ready in the hot bed to move right in, so after about an hour spent planting, I had the first crops planted in there. The vegetables included snow peas, mescaline mix, lettuce, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, spinach, radish and Chinese cabbage.

Potato Experiment
The cardboard boxes in the picture have potatoes planted in them. I cut the bottoms of the boxes out and placed them upside down with the flaps out. I planted three potato chits in the soil inside the boxes. The idea is to fill up the boxes with soil as the potatoes grow. When the potatoes are ready to harvest, theoretically I can just tear the boxes apart.

Hot Bed
The hot bed is about 2/3 full of tomato, peppers, lettuce, carrots, beets, snow peas as well as some annual and perennial flowers. I will probably fill it the next time I plant, which will be in about two weeks.
