We continue to have variable weather in these last days of April - some rain, some sunshine and some windy days thrown in. Overnight temperatures a few nights ago were below freezing but our tomato plants were cozy in their new home.
Here is what the straw bale greenhouse looked like this morning in our backyard in Dartmouth.
We moved about six tomato plants outside last weekend and they appear to be thriving in their new home.
Since the first few plants did so well, we moved more plants out to the greenhouse this morning. Black Plum, Sunshine Yellow Cherry, Black Prince, Andean, Teton de Venus and Isis Candy Cherry are just some of the tomatoes we are growing this year.
We've already hit 15 degrees celcius here this morning so we've opened up the bales and windows to give the tomatoes some fresh air and let them feel the spring breezes.
That's all for now. The Flowtron Leaf Eater arrived yesterday. Stay tuned for a report on how well the dang thing works.
Happy Vegetable Growing!
