All our heirloom plants are all started from seed in our sprouting room located on the 3rd floor of the house. Peppers & Eggplants in January, and Tomatoes are staggered through February & March.
In 2017 we added another greenhouse to accommodate the seedlings when they are kicked out of the house in April. It’s tough love, but we need to harden them off and make room for the next wave of plants.
We have an open door policy, so feel free to stop by and see the progression.
Once all chance of frost is gone, all those plants are transplanted into the earth where they grow to maturity. Patience is required. Especially this year. 2017 Was a record setting wet & cold year with localized flooding and several hail storms. Lucky for us we had someone looking out for us.
When all was said and done, there was a jungle of deliciousness out there begging to be picked. Yum!
