The first plants were moved outside of the greenhouse last evening so they can acclimate to the real world environment. Tiny seedlings a month ago–greens for salads in another month, we trust!
We still have thousands of plants in various stages of growth in the greenhouse. More will be moved outside as they get to the appropriate size. Now we need to be on guard for various pests like rabbits, deer, groundhogs, stray dogs–anything who poses a threat to our “babies!”
We received a good deal of rain yesterday. The area springs are running and we have puddles in the gardens (no plants yet, just puddles) for the first time in a long time. I cannot remember the last time I saw this much water in Cane Creek. The drought has lasted so long . . . which is not good for asparagus as it is in the lily family.
I am starting to dream about green salads and the first asparagus spears. In the meantime, here are some ceramic salt and pepper spears!
