Since our last blog, we've completed the transplanting into the greenhouses (supervised by Moonbeam, as you can see). Our short greenhouse has eggplant and cucumbers in it. The longer greenhouse has tomatoes, peppers, basil, and the leftover eggplants. Now we just need the heat units to see their growth.
The cauliflower and cabbage have also been covered with mesh (to prevent cabbage moth and cabbage worms), thanks to Amanda's patience in working out the prototype. We've been sitting on the mesh for two seasons, so it's exciting to see it up. Isn't it beautiful?
A life changer this season is the landscaping fabric that we're using for the long season crops, such as the brassicas, celeriac, and what's in our greenhouses. It is often these crops that get lost to the weeds as the season progresses, so we can rest a bit easier knowing we have these laid out and planted. We are grateful to our CSA members, and their early season subscriptions, that helped us to get the landscaping fabric this year. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
