Greenhouse Season

This spring is turning out to be quite different than last year. I spent some time looking back at the temperatures for 2012 in the Richmond area:  the last date with temperatures in the 30’s was March 11th, and we had already experienced several weeks with temperatures in the 80’s! With nighttime temperatures forecast to be in the 30’s the next couple of days, I sure am glad to have a greenhouse. Swiss chard and Kale will survive a light spring frost, but starting them in the greenhouse will speed things up considerably. They’ll be going in the ground soon though, to be replaced by the rapidly growing tomato, pepper, and eggplant seedlings.

Kale as far as the eye can see.


Green onions.


Dinosaur kale.


More kale.
