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.

The cold frame beds have been fully planted now.  There are three beds filled with soil where seedlings and seeds were planted.  The radishes have sprouted under just a week and the tips of the beets are emerging. Containers are planted in the last cold frame.  Lettuce, flowers, and brocolli are growing in this cold frame.  Seeds are also being started for May transplant into the garden.
