For the spring of 2014 we will begin on Saturday, March 1st, which isn’t all that far away. Everything grew really well last year and we harvested many varieties of tomatoes, basil, cucumbers, eggplant, peppers and more. Cantaloupes worked very well too. Last year we tried early carrots, pakchoi and peas before the main summer crops; something we should try again. We also grew artichokes at the greenhouse for planting at the Garlic Co-op site.
The Greenhouse Group had good participation with new members joining throughout the season.
Last year we started with a get-together to share seeds and discuss what we would want to grow which is something we will do again. After that we could start our first seed trays. No-one has to commit for the full year because our aim is about participation at any level of experience.
The cleared beds in the Greenhouse have been planted in rye and clover cover crop for the winter. Last year’s harvest went really well and we should be very proud how 2013 turned out.
