While the grandchildren were here, I turned my back on the greenhouse for those 2 weeks. It dawned on me yesterday that I'd better go out there and take care of it. First, I needed a hearty breakfast... sourdough whole wheat pancakes, butter, maple syrup, a farm fresh egg and some milk kefir:
Next, I put on Silicone Glove and ran soap under my fingernails:
Here I am, all ready to get to work!
The kale is all going to seed:
The Swiss chard is calling for help!
The weeds (this is dock) are rejoicing:
50 degrees outside the greenhouse, 72 inside:
The first wheelbarrow load going to the compost:
And the second.....:
Baby tomato plants:
Now the Swiss Chard can breathe:
A few leaf lettuces that survived the winter:
That only took 2 hours of work. And was a lot of fun!
