Whats Happen April 13, 2013 Country Taste Farm

The Weather Out side Is more like Early March Snow, Snow Snow!!! However That's why we have Green house and High Tunnels. So We Started Broccoli, Cauliflower, Cabbage, Bok choi, Lettuce, Rosemary, Basil, Peppers, Tomatoes, Onions in the Green house, and we put Lettuce in the High tunnel. WE also Directed seeded Radish, and Spinach in the High tunnel today. We need 40 Degree soil temp to germinate Radish out side the soil is 32 degrees in the high tunnel it is 55. This type of a cold spring is the whole idea behind the High tunnels. The temperature in the High tunnel reached 95 Degrees when the sun was out today, a cooling fan actually came on to keep it from over heating.

We start the seeds in our basement with grow lights
When the plants grow to the second true leaf they
are transferred to the greenhouse

Lettuce and Brussels Sprouts
First plants in the high tunnel April 10th

Looking Forward to planting out side i feel i little like the Farm Kings on TV But i don't have the Six Pack Abbas.
