Journal April 16, 2015 - Greenhouse is overflowing
This time of year the greenhouse is filled to capacity, and then some. The tomatoes have been planted, but the garden plants need to be protected for another month. Sometime during that period the cucumbers will need room, as will the pepper plants. There are six more large olive trees in a tent indoors that will have to be moved outdoors soon also, so space is at a premium.
The small pots use up water quickly in the greenhouse when the sun is shining, so it is a never ending battle to prevent them from drying. To tell the truth, I could never do this if I was not retired.
Life will be much easier next month, when the garden is in and the automatic watering system is operational.
