We bought this greenhouse on sale last fall, and we finally were able to get it into the garden without sinking up to our ankles in mud, so we are now greenhouse owners. Unfortunately, it's probably too late for many of our seedlings, which should have been out there a month ago. My 64 tomato seedlings are still a couple inches tall and looking kind of purple, rather than green. Most of the other seedlings are short and wimpy. I think the greenhouse looks pretty wimpy too, so I hope it holds up against our strong northern winds.
I went to a local nursery a few days ago and bought some large tomato and pepper plants, so we will have at least enough home-grown tomatoes and peppers for our own family's needs. We were hoping to sell at a farmer's market this year. I am still holding out hope that the eggplant will grow big enough to put into the garden at some point. One year -- the only year we were successful with eggplant -- was when they went into the garden at the end of June. Every other year, the bugs eat them up.
That bushy green flat of plants you see in front of the greenhouse came from the local nursery. Those black trays in the greenhouse are my seedlings. Sad, isn't it?
