I have been doing my part to combat the Seasonal Affective Disorder brought on by incessant snowstorms and grey days by seeding up and transplanting seedlings with 6 veterans and one assistant none of whom have done this work consistently. We have grown a variety of stuff. Of course, there is the Romaine Lettuce (2 crops) which is standing pretty tall and spinach which is really trying.
We have Celosia (the first crop is pictured here in two phases). The First picture is 2.12 and the second is 2.27.10.
Basil (picture on the right hand side) oregano (pictured to the left),
parsley, dill and cilantro.
We are going to have a large sale in the area of the Medical Center where the canteen (a junk food haven), cafeteria, and dining room are located. Hopefully, people will come out and buy the herbs to keep in a sunny room as they are cheaper than buying them in the grocery store for gourmet cooking.
In and amongst all these seedlings, we have had serious discussions about appropriate work behaviors. Ie. Working next to others who work at different paces than you, attendance, punctuality, appropriate topics for discussion in mixed company... oh, the list is long.
Yes... the growing season has begun in the GREENHOUSE!!
