What's Going On in the Greenhouses?

Greenhouse + Sprinkler

We've been so busy in the fields lately that I feel like I've almost forgotten about the greenhouses. A couple of weeks ago, we went in and cut down all the grass, cleaned things up, and reorganized, so things are looking good.

Most of our starts have already been transplanted into the fields, but there's still some cool stuff waiting to be planted.

From top to bottom, those are beets, corn, red sails lettuce, freckles romaine lettuce, and more romaine lettuce. There's a good chance, however, that I'm off on those lettuce varieties.

And speaking of greenhouses, I went on a farm tour of Haliburton Farm near Victoria and was hot-diggity-dog impressed with some of their greenhouses. Here are some photos of a couple of Farmer Ray's greenhouses and healthy looking veggie plants.
