will I start seeds without bottom heat! What a difference in the germination rate and strength of the seedlings.
The garden beds are all young and will need lots of new plants. Last year, after the repair of a major retaining wall, work began in earnest - lavender, thyme, oregano, clary sage, horseradish, potatoes, tomatoes, broccoli, fruit trees, and boxwood to name a few.
Because of the terrain the beds vary in character so have been named - The Back 40 (feet), Old Kitchen Garden, The Great Wall of Annisquam Garden and of course, a nod to Mr. James Crockett who inspired so many of us, The Victory Garden.
The greenhouse is almost four seasons. This spring and late winter gave us herbs, salad greens, broccoli and cauliflower from stock planted last year.
This year the greenhouse and gardens will be open for the Cape Ann 10th Anniversary Garden Festival, June 20, so there is a lot of activity inside and out! Click here for Garden Festival information
