March Harvest and a Greenhouse Update

For my Twenty Wishes 2015 , Number 15 is
 
Harvest something edible from either the green house or garden 10 months of the year
 
The winter months are, of course, the trickiest ones!  I wrote the goal to challenge myself to use the greenhouse for more than just winter storage.
 
Harvesting something from a seed that I planted is so very gratifying, especially in mid-March!  Check out this lettuce!  Isn't it pretty?!  It's tasty, too!
 
 
How do I grow it?  Well, Handsome Husband cut a 55 gallon barrel in half and filled it with soil.
 
  
There is lettuce and spinach planted toward the front
 
 

 
with snow peas toward the back.  For climbing we have bamboo stakes and some cattle panel.  The peas are currently about two feet tall.



My fancy gardening utensil for transplanting small sprouts.  ;-)

 
What do you plan to grow this year?

  1. I hope my comment arrived. Sorry if this is a repeat. I garden in raised beds on a float next to my floating cabin. I'll start the week after Easter and harvest my first lettuce in early June, but it's worth the wait. Come on by and take a look. - Margy

  3. I always have high hopes for a garden every year but it never turns out how I would like. I would love to try some raised beds. Maybe this is the year for me... Your starters look great. :-)
