The greenhouse of Blue House Greenhouse Farm now has a vent! This is very exciting news for the seedlings living in the greenhouse--with more air circulating through they will be less susceptible to molds and fungal problems. As the sun peeks out once in a while the vent will also keep the greenhouse from becoming too warm. There are many ways one can vent a greenhouse. A hoop house like the one we have often has the sides of the plastic sheeting roll up- rolling up the sides during the day and rolling them down at night.
window open with the auto vent opener!

In other news: The tomatoes have sprouted and are doing well under the lights. I've begun selling to another restaurant, DOC, in NE Portland which looks amazing. And this past Sunday we broke a weather record. This is the longest we've gone in a year without a 60 degree day. sigh. But I think it's supposed to change on Thursday... I'll keep you posted!
