Planting in the Vegetable Greenhouse

Fresh, organic produce will soon be growing in my vegetable greenhouse.

As my outdoor grounds crew continues with fall chores around the farm, attention is directed toward planting my vegetable greenhouse. I love this greenhouse - its construction several years ago was inspired by Eliot Coleman, an expert in four-season farming. It uses minimal artificial heat - in fact, most of its energy comes directly from the sun, and it successfully grows a variety of cold-hardy crops. In late summer, we solarized all the raised garden beds, then fertilized them a few weeks later. This week, the first seeds of the season were planted.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
