Yesterday I visited a geothermal greenhouse to see the progress of the plants inside. These tomatoes, 5 different varieties if I remember correctly, were planted back in the first week of April. They’re easily 3 times the size of my own tomatoes that are growing outdoors.
One of our favorite vegetables has become spaghetti squash over the last year. The children are very picky eaters and I was amazed when I gave them a sample of spaghetti squash and they asked for more.
This year we are going to grow two crops of the spaghetti squash with the second one being in the in the garden green house. The first crop is out in the soil and many of the plants are already over 8 feet tall. Here is just one of the many squash growing in our garden.
Today we sat down and shredded the zucchini from the garden. At the end of this little project we had 22 cups of it to put in the freezer for zucchini bread we all love. Our favorite recipe calls for 2 cups of zucchini so we premeasued into into quart size freezer bags.
I’ll be honest here, I don’t like 4 foot wide grow boxes. It is diffult to tend to stuff in it and you can’t reach from one side to the other. I much prefer the 18″ wide grow boxes in my Mittleider garden.
This past spring I had someone share with me a tip that makes the task of removing insect eggs from the plants in your garden much easier. After trying it I had to get a little video to show just how well it works.
