The earliest summer squash seeds are now situated for growing with soil, water and temperatures conducive to their life cycle. Plans and schemes are underway to have summer vegetables back on the menu as soon as possible this spring.
Since I had been to the greenhouse last week, the watering and sprinkler systems have been completed and enacted. Thank goodness all of this does not require extensive use of the watering can any longer. Utilizing rain water reserves, the sprinklers are keeping the seedlings moist as evenly and efficiently as possible in order to preserve one of our most precious resources (water!!). Hopefully an overview of the entire greenhouse construction will be made available for your reading pleasure before too long. It is all still in progress as we plant and work this spring.
