Celery in 100 degree temps!

We continue to learn as we grow here at Moonstruck.  The irrigation is still being tweaked to maximize, but with a little shade cloth we are growing lettuce and spinach in 100 degree temps in the greenhouse...and celery!!! Wow, I would have told you you were crazy if you had told me I could grow celery in a greenhouse in 100 degree temps any given time in the past, but my experience is growing.  Cilantro tucked into a corner with nice even watering can be kept too.  All these goals are one step closer to supplying our CSA customers with all their needs on a year around basis.  The welder is already coming in handy and new panels are being built to build a larger pen for the goats so we can add a buck and babies next Spring hopefully :).  I am dreaming of cream cheese, feta and sour cream!! Filet will be kept company too since they are being moved down towards her though Molly has been doing a fine job of keeping her company and Filet rewards her with a kiss.  Michael and I walked the property and when you have only 5 acres you have to work it pretty intensively to get a good yield.  It took some convincing, but beds will be built across the front of the house which should create somewhere around another 500-700 feet of row space for potatoes, garlic, shallots, onions, leeks and anything else the critters won't eat opening up space in the protected fields in the back.  We have a beautiful rolling section in the front and Merlot grapes will be added there.  The whole rim will be surrounded by lavender plants and a flag pole surrounded by a rim of three different lavenders is definitely in the future....can't wait to have a beautiful place to hang our nation's flag.  Thank you again everyone for your support....we truly would not be here without you.  Moonstruck signing off.
