You can see the seedlings not yet in flats; they're the patch of bright green on the bench to the left.
I'm trying to figure out what I did with all the cottage cheese and yogurt containers I saved last summer. I had many, many of them, but can I find them now? Of course not. I walked around and rooted around in almost all our outbuildings with no luck. So for the moment I'm stopped on transplanting until I can either find them or get more containers. I'm about 75% finished, I think. The Early Girl tomatoes are in bigger pots because I want them to move along fast so we get tomatoes as soon as early in the season as possible.
I am really liking this greenhouse. There is plenty of room and it stays very warm during the day. The electric heater I used last night just barely kept the temperature warm enough, so I will be looking for another option for heat, or a bigger electric heater. Larry is checking out our old kerosene heater today to see if it can be used--I'm leery of it because the last time we used it in the greenhouse it smoked and coated everything with black. Not good for the plants. I don't want to go there again.
What are these dead-looking things? These are the geraniums we pulled up last fall and hung upside down in the cellar. some of them seem to have weathered through just fine, and even have some green on them. Others I'm pretty sure are no good at all. But all it will cost me to find out is a little soil, water and time. If the ones that look promising actually do make it, we'll have saved a good bit on new plants. One of them was a survivor from the 2007 garden so this will make its third year.
I did one flat of broccoli, one of Savoy cabbage, and 4 or 5 of tomatoes yesterday. I still have more tomatoes, all of the peppers, and celery and leeks to transplant when I get more containers. I think I'll get some flower seeds started too. Might as well since I have the space in the greenhouse. Do you have any suggestions of flowers I might want to try?
