I'm Dreaming of a Green Christmas
Typically, in the winter months, our greenhouse is shut down completely. In the past it's been used as storage or an extra place to finish woodwork. This year, we're testing out a new, greener, approach. Last weekend, Jason and Tim helped me set up a few 'dirt boxes' which I planted with (mostly) cold-weather vegetables. I did sneak in a few peppers and tomatoes as well, just as an experiment. I'm hoping that by Christmas I might even have a few fresh veggies. What a present that would be!
The set-up looks a little sloppy, but I think it'll do the trick! You can even see that I've already got zucchini, yellow squash, lettuce, and peas sprouting! Hooray!
