The 2019 growing season is now underway

Scott Sigurdson Life on Orchard Garden, Shareholder Reports

We’ve been busy seeding and germinating trays of onions, eggplant, peppers and tomatoes the past couple weeks. At the moment everything is still indoors, but as the plants mature and get potted up we will move them to the greenhouse. Probably mid march. We could go into the greenhouse earlier but the cost of propane heat in -25°C weather is prohibitive.

The 1000W light bulb we use as a grow light produces alot of heat, which means that we don’t burn as much wood heating our home while the starts are inside our home. Two birds, one stone.
