The Indoor Garden is Exploding - and Wants Out

Above, a large part of my greenhouse.  Thousands of plants are growing.

It finally warmed overnight and then was the warmest yet in 2013 during the afternoon and evening.

Most of the greenhouse space is being taken by plants in containers that will be moved outside.  All that will remain inside will be basil, cucumbers, tomatoes, and some herbs.  Most years, the containers of greens and some of the hardy garden transplants  would be outside by now.  Not this one.

There is no more space inside the greenhouse for planters for bean transplants. more lettuce starts, or ten more basil containers.

Spring might have actually arrived this week, though.
