Planting season is later this year as the cold of winter lingers longer, but it means more time to get all the flower seedlings in so they can grow big and lush.
It's a busy time, but somehow the rest of the season is just as busy with weeding, harvesting, packaging, and making notes for next year.
The tulips are popping but they aren't for harvesting this year. Cut flower tulips are grown as annuals, with the whole bulb being pulled to harvest. These are being perennialized and there will eventually be a multi-year rotation planted so I can have cut flower tulips every year, but for now they get to grow on and rejuvenate their bulbs. Oliver also thinks they are even prettier for their deep sustainability!
Some special seedlings are finally germinating with the warmth in the greenhouse. These were seeded in winter and set out in the snow, freeze, and cold. Then moved into the warm dome which then helps them germinate. Some things are worth the wait!
The microgreens are super lush since being moved into the greenhouse too. A little bit of sunshine and a little bit of warmth, with a little bit of water helps everything to green up nicely!
