Spring at Sosnicki's!!
This is the type of dream weather you hope to have to get your seeds sprouting! Gorgeous full sun, higher evening temps - stuff in the greenhouses are just thriving! My heirloom tomatoes are rooting down, growing dark green and loving the heat in the houses! Onions and lettuce are up and going too! (they actually prefer it a bit cooler!!) Our first broccoli plants are up, same with baby kale, and Asian greens such as Tatsoi and Bok Choy pop and grow very fast! Some of these plantings will be for our 'covered fields', others will venture out into the field but also be covered this year. Amaranthus, Sweet Peas, Petunias, Summer Thyme, Millet, Tomatillos & Snap Dragons just to name a few other varieties of fun stuff we've got started around here too! Pepper seeds are swelling and germinating loving this heat! Peppers love the heat like tomatoes! Our radish and green garlic have sprouted in greenhouse #3, a pic included of Ben watering those crops! Enough blabbing (blogging) - Ben's calling, I'm needed with the staple gun in greenhouse #1 pronto! Cheers, enjoy this weather, it's gonna get cold again!!
