? We last reported on the High Tunnel greenhouse on March 3. 2010. with the planting of first crops.
This photo was taken on 3/15 and shows small heads of lettuce as well as tomato plants.


? The crew assembled and put in place a 2×4 internal framework to strengthen both ends of the greenhouse.


? There are zippered entrances on either end of this High Tunnel greenhouse.


? Here we can see the crops steadily maturing.


? At this time four kinds of lettuce are raised, Buttercrunch, Romaine, Mesclun Mix and Red Leaf. Over 30 pounds of lettuce have been harvested so far.
There are crops of Swiss Chard, Spinach, Carrots, Yellow Crookneck Summer Squash, Amy Melons, Snow Peas, Dill, Basil.
The crew also planted Marigolds and Borage for pest resistence.
