The Greenhouse Debacle
So if you read our first greenhouse ordeal here, you will already know that we had to rig what remained of our wind destroyed greenhouse in our barn and hope it worked. It didn’t. The issue was with power. We could not get our heaters to stay on in the barn in order to heat the greenhouse. This resulted in too low of a temperature for our seeds to properly germinate. What did germinate did not result in a healthy plant.
Because of this we decided to give ourselves a pass, a break, a pat on the back and a “you tried your best,” this year. We will be buying started plants for most of our vegetables. And guess what??
We are still in our first year at our property and we sometimes have to remind ourselves that Rome wasn’t built in a day. Setbacks happen. This is one for us. We will do better next year and hopefully have a working hot house or green house that will allow us to successfully sow our seeds so we do not need to buy started plants for 2024.
