Come see what is sprouting in my greenhouse

In keeping with the greenhouse theme, I thought it would be fun to show you what’s been going on in one area of the big greenhouse. As you can see, the gardeners have been quite busy getting ready for planting outdoors when all danger of frost has past. Seedlings for vegetables and annuals are growing nicely. And during this time, a new crop of vegetable seeds, are planted every two weeks so that, hopefully, the garden remains productive throughout the summer. This is called successive planting. Now we just have to hope that the weather cooperates and it’s neither too wet, nor too dry.

Some of my favorite sources for seeds:
Johnny’s Selected Seeds
Thompson & Morgan
The Cook’s Garden
And see how we make seed-starting blocks

A nice over-view of what is going on in my greenhouse - older seedlings are in the foreground with newer ones growing beyond.
