Fill' er up!

Today I took inventory of the greenhouse seedlings. I still have about 2 out of 6 shelves to fill....but I'm certain I can fill it up....So far, in the greenhouse we have 195 tomato plants with 15 varieties, 55 cukes with 4 varieties, 150 peppers with 11 varieties, 72 butter cream cauliflower, 20 red okra, 20 purple tomatillo, 25 tango celery, and 120 different herbs. I still have quite a lot of plants under lights in my closet at home (yes my closet :) that I will move to the greenhouse soon. The hoop houses are filled with broccoli, cabbage and peas and all are doing great....Tomorrow I will start more seedlings for my home garden and yet a few more...(i mean a lot more) for the family garden.

My dad rototilled the grass area for the new garden addition this week and put the electric fence around it...(lots of deer would love to munch on our hard work) he was supposed to call me and I was going to come over and help but noooo....he did it all himself...only took him 4 hours he said......grrrrr...I love my dad but he should listen to me and let me help........ :) The new area is around 24' x 90. Now we just need to rake it out and remove the grass clumps and it will be ready to plant! With that said...I know I have my day cut out for me... .. I'm off to chill out :)

  1. That's a lot of plants! ;-) I might have you beat on the tomato varieties, but not the number of plants.
