Spring has Arrived! (We Hope)

Today we celebrated one month since arriving in Armenia! With snow finally almost gone the garden is drying out, and we’ll be preparing beds in the next few days. The big news is that the greenhouse will be finished tomorrow – just in time for us to transplant about 40 flats of tomatoes, broccoli, cabbage, and lettuce.

The peppers are slow in coming up and will be another 10 days or two weeks, and eggplant will follow that by a few days.

As quickly as we get the greenhouse into production we will build an in-the-ground hot-bed of 2 X 5 meters – to show students and visitors how they can grow 2000 healthy seedlings right in their own garden.

The home we were supposed to be living in still doesn’t have reliable water, which means we visit the outhouse, and we can’t use any gas appliances yet because of a gas leak, so we are roughing it.
