Here's the garlic! On my final work day last season Mike and I planted this garlic in the hoop house behind his mother's home in Beverly. We made this decision because as some of you probably know garlic is planted in the fall and stays in the ground it is planted for many months. This can mean many hours of weeding and care, but here we have eliminated that obstacle by planting them in a controlled environment and so far they are doing great.
Sometimes it takes a crew of lobstermen to build a greenhouse. Last Thursday morning right before the wind picked-up 10 lobstermen helped us to pull our plastic up over the greenhouse roof. We couldn't have done it without them. With all this sunshine, our seedlings are nice and warm and growing strong.
The season has started! In this past week we seeded our future heat loving crops(eggplant, peppers and tomatoes). And also seeded what will come out in the first few weeks(broccoli, cabbage, head lettuce). With the rain holding off more than we expected we should have peas in the ground any day now. And the greenhouse is near completion!
