Want to expand to basil, thyme, and would like to see if I could do pepper (i.e. spice, not veggie) plant.

I haven’t tried that one yet, but have had success with cilantro, cherry tomato, and basil.

Was thinking of running a solar powered pump, from one of the ponds, to a container, and then flow back out into the pond.

Through a lucky accident, the HS wrestling team had their annual fundraiser sale early, almost too early. 50# of organic spuds, some started to sprout so went out into the greenhouse and drug in some soil to thaw. Ended up with 7 5 gallon buckets with 2 spuds in each. Put up an LED light out of the greenhouse also. I no longer have a “heater room”, its fast becoming a jungle. Should help out this year. The 10″ of snow we got on Thursday/Friday kinda set the greenhouse back a while. March 28, 2020 at 3:49 pm #27095 corsaireParticipant Okra does well, I planted it in a whiskey barrel.
