Garden Goodness

The first few leaves of the spinach plants where harvested today. The spinach plants are looking quite nice. It is interesting that only two of the lettuce seeds sprouted. This exactly opposite of what happened last year. I had only two spinach and lots of lettuce. The greenhouse seems to be working well since I didn't harvest my lettuce last year until a few weeks from how if I remember right.

Looking at the temperatures records for the last couple of days the temperature inside the greenhouse ranged from a low of 31 to a high of 90 while the outside temperature ranged from 21 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit. This is an improvement over the last fall when the minimum temperature difference was only 5 degrees, no it is up to 10. Now I need to worry about seeing if we can keep it from getting to hot since summer is on it's way.
