|Mustard or Kale flowers|
My flowers this week are courtesy of my veggie plot. I don't know if they are kale or a mild mustard as they came from a mesclun mix. Now they have bolted and are producing these pretty bright yellow flowers.
|Whorls of flowers|
I like how the whorls form. They produce a beautiful pattern. I haven't yet tried eating these. Maybe I'll take a nibble tomorrow or Sunday and I'll report back.
It's gearing up towards the busy season. We've run out of space in the big OC greenhouses and Sunday, when Pam and I work, we'll start to transfer the flats over to Vicki's greenhouse. I'm afraid that that house will be filling up fast as well and I really think I should order a couple more four-tier shelving units for the house.

|More baby lettuces and greens|
The baby organic greens are coming along well - maybe a couple of weeks before we start harvesting. I could harvest for micro greens but I don't know how much of a market there is for that. We also have four shelves of seedling trays in this greenhouse.
Talked to Vicki about getting some poly barrels - 55 gallon to fill with water and to use as supports for a center bench. The big drums will serve as a kind of "heat sink" - warming during the day and giving off their stored warmth at night. The heating bill was rather alarming for February so I want to try anything to get the heating costs down and to modulate the greenhouse temperature.
