Now that the greenhouse has been erected and bolted down it’s time to begin using it.
We did our research on early spring crops and came up with the following:
The peas will have their own square but I suggested to Charlie that the radishes be planted around exterior of the greenhouse since they grown quickly and look attractive.
Lettuce, Swiss chard — start indoors.
Both lettuce and Swiss chard are planted 4 per square foot so one 4′ by 4′ square would accommodate 64 plants. That’s a lot of seed starting.
We number the garden squares from the driveway side since that is the actual entrance. Now that 4 squares have been removed we might have to come up with another numbering scheme.
I bought myself some Lemon Queen sunflower seeds which I personally am going to plant earlier this year than I did last year. I may even start them inside.
Hoping to plant in the near future.
What’s your favorite crop?
