The greenhouse, in pictures

So, last fall I was wondering if my comparatively tiny, low-thermal-mass greenhouse would ever be “worth it.” It’s the first week of May. The greenhouse kale, which I’m letting go to seed, is literally shoulder-high on me. We’ve been flush with greens since mid-March. We’ve harvested about six pounds of Hakurei turnips and greens so far. I’ve grown my own kale, cabbage, and broccoli transplants and moved them outside.
Yes. It’s worth it.
Turnips and peas and onions

Hakurei turnips. Addictive!
Looking out the greenhouse door. Alliums on the left, podding radishes on the right.
Podding radish flowers. The seed pods on these will get as big as small green beans. I want to try pickling them.
Wild kale flower. Eat like broccoli, or gather the seeds after the blossoms fade.
