In the green house:
Started agretti; Mache (deer’s tongue), Fennel; Tomato- Tumbler; Tomato- Window Box Roma; Tomato- Red Robin (yum); Tomato- Virginia Sweets (free seeds from Tomato Growers Supply Co.; a bonus to my order);a banana pepper in the green house, planted some mesclun mix
At the community garden plot:
Miner’s Lettuce, purple broccoli, french sorrel, Dragon's Toungue Beans, Snow peas, Chinese Cabbage
Harvest something- More sprouts; some chives I found that wintered over well, foraged some chickweed
Preserve something- Made and froze some soup. Dehydrated some chives and put into a spice cannister
Local Food systems- was invited by some community garden members to a plant sale at someones private green house. Very cool to see what is possible to do with a greenhouse in an urban setting as far as a potential income maker. Also a friend got a plot at the community garden so of course made her a welcome gift of seeds, gloves and implements.
Preparation: Bought some lamps from the Ikea As Is department and a one from the thrift stores and one from the house lying around doing nothing to use for seed starting, found a light timer from Christmas to turn grow lights on at dusk and turn them off a dew hours later. Prepped the community garden spot for spring planting. Made a DIY Soil Block maker for seed starting- More about that tomorrow
Eat the food/eat something new- Baked Cheese with herbs picked last summer; a salad made with chives I harvested and some chickweed I foraged. Elk Stew bought at Eat local.
Waste not- Light timer for the greenhouse was from my Christmas box and re-used an old desk lamp for a CFL bulb to increase the light time.
Want not - Made a DIY Soil Block maker for seed starting- More about that tomorrow;Bought some lamps from the Ikea As Is department and a one from the thrift stores and one from the house lying around doing nothing to use for seed startingAte a salad with cheese and sunflower seeds and some fresh harvested chives and freshly foraged chickweed and a cheese sandwich. No candy, and I had a strong craving for a Mocha, so I made a mocha at home.
