Kathy is organizing the seeds, some of us are going to a seed savers’ workshop offered by the Valencia County Extension Service, and Geri started putting the greenhouse in order. Note the before and after pictures and the amazing eggplants that survived the heat in the greenhouse earthbox–without being watered! We’re thinking of installing some of the watering hoses that came with the greenhouse. They’d allow us to water from above to keep the place humid. Right now the temperature in the greenhouse at mid-day is over 100 degrees!
