The Greenhouse team started the 2013 Greenhouse efforts on Tuesday, March 26th, with some basic sanitation, and rules from Extension Educator Steve Bogash, and then jumped right in for the next three days starting our seeds for Renfrew, Tomato Day, our Plant Sale, and Herb Garden.
On Monday, April 1, Jessica and Juanita Kauffman potted up the previously started demo flats for the seed starting class, the March vegetable garden class, and fall-rescued roots of ornamental sweet potato.
By the end of the week, sprouted seed cells were thinned and watering volunteers for weekend duty identified.
We're well on our way!
Here's the team.
