Workday in the Greenhouse
Hi there everyone! This is the start of something very new for me. I am so excited to begin posting on my farming blog. I can't wait to share all of my experiences as we get off and running with our new business.
Well where do I even begin? The past two days have been a whirlwind of nervousness and excitement.
Yesterday (Friday), I battled the wind. Our low tunnels that we installed a week ago where out in the field minding their own business when the wind started gusting at unspeakable speeds. When I finally took a break from something in the house to walk outside, I noticed that the low tunnels had come loose and our plastic was sailing in the wind. Rushing to grab some brick and a shovel, I was soon able to tame the chaos by replacing the dirt that had once held down the sides of the low tunnels.
Thankfully, today was a much better workday. I spent most of Saturday's hours in my element. I love having my hands immersed in soil of any kind and that's exactly what I did. I huddled in the warmth of the greenhouse, and got straight to work. The first thing I accomplished was thinning our spring transplants. Those veggies included: broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, and cabbage. Then I expanded our plant guests in the greenhouse to a number of new veggies. Our newest members are: Carolina Reapers (currently the hottest peppers in the world), Tomatoes (indeterminate and determinate, 4 different varieties), Rosemary, Thyme, Chives, Oregano, Dill, Cilantro, Parsley, and Basil. I would have to say this has been one of the most relaxing days for me in a long time and I am looking forward to watching our current and newly planted seeds grow over the next couple of weeks.
I hope you enjoy the pictures and stay tune to more posts in the near future!

3 Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:
8 ...did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.
