Seeds sprouting in the greenhouse!

The first couple batches of plantings have begun... early spring crops like kale, broccoli, cabbage, scallions, lettuce, leeks, as well as the first tomatoes & peppers!
We heat only 1/3 of the greenhouse this year-- a plastic curtain divides the space. A propane heater brings the temperature up to 45-50 degrees at night.
Mom came out to help plant! Thanks!
And here we have the final state of the greenhouse, after weeks and months of building:
I spend a lot of time in there. Soon I'll be moving out into the fields, but things are still a little frosty outside. It's nice to be in 90 degree heat on a cold sunny day.
