Just popped down to the basement, where the temperature is a steady 15 C and a fan keeps the air circulating 24/7. Blowing air can help prevent a host of problems, but it also toughens up the plants, making them sturdier, stronger and more ready to deal with the 'real world' once they are moved outside.
Here' s a peek under my lights on this cool and cloudy Wednesday, along with a few other photos from the past week!
|A photo from the Spring Ideal Home Show last weekend.|
Finally, a company that sells quality cold frames! For
contact info and pricing, check out Nova Tree Company. So exciting!
|Paul MacPhee of MacPhee's Landscaping Services. Paul is also|
the current President of Landscape Nova Scotia!
|Retail Sales Manager, Jackie from Blomidon Nurseries! I had|
a great time speaking there last month and will be back again on
Friday, May 25th from 10 am to 12:30 to speak on Year Round
Veggie Gardening and do an extended Q & A session!
|A GIANT pumpkin seedling from garden friend, Pete. You|
can't buy seed like this! He sent me some from a 1200 LB
pumpkin! This baby is already 5 inches tall and I have 4 others
that are quickly catching up.
|A peek under the lights - look how things have grown in|
just a few days. Plus, I have more to start - zinnias, cukes,
zucchini, more gourds/pumpkins, etc.
|Ragged Jack Kale. Love that the true leaves are so 'raggedy'|
and divided. You can even see the purple centre vein already.
|Another photo.. gourds, kale, tomatoes, onions and more!|
|Portuguese Kale from Renee's Garden. Huge flat|
leaves grow 18-inches tall. Heat tolerant with a mild,
sweet flavour. Can't wait!
