Solar High Tunnel and Brussels Sprout Harvest


The big news this week is that we have planted in the solar high tunnel!

Our seedlings that have been germinating for the past 3-6 weeks in the greenhouse were gently transplanted into the beds in the solar high tunnel.  Allen’s lab class did a good chunk of the work turning over the soil and measuring out placement of the seedlings.

On Monday Steph, Matt, Allen and Esther harvested Brussels sprouts from Elsalma in the most miserable conditions, but that’s OK, we them out before the frost.  After harvest, we washed and trimmed the roots to prepare them for storage in the root cellar.
