After a few outdoor chores and a little playing in the newly melted puddles where we managed to float a tiny red sailboat on the back patio, my helper (who now had wet mittens, skirt and tights) and I headed into the greenhouse to warm up and dry off. The greenhouse was over 20C, helped by the beautiful warm sunshine coming in through the south facing windows that are no longer covered in snow. The greens we planted into the ground of the greenhouse last fall are now coming up nicely - mainly lettuces, spinach, arugula, mustard, and some chard and cilantro too. We had our first taste of this season's baby lettuce - mmmm. Any fresh green is so hopeful at this time of year.
