The lettuce pictured above was harvested today from our coldframe greenhouse. It was started from a seed in one of our two cold frames last year. The head of lettuce was then over wintered in the cold frame and had since shown considerable amount of growth. The decision was made to harvest it for consumption, before it went to seed.
Greenhouses need drains. The drain shown in this photograph is an ideal example of greenhouse drainage; because water can quickly be pushed into it. Sweeping water long distances across a floor can become cumbersome and dangerous as the floor becomes wet. To create a safer working environment, place drains every 3’-4’ feet.
