|Mini-greenhouses made from tires, boards, plastic, and staples.|
I doubt that vegetables grown in tires count as organic, but hey, at least I’m recycling. And, here in the mountains, I need something to lengthen the growing season. The tires are in one of the sunniest spots on campus, but since the soil is like a sand box, I had to fill them with potting mix.
My green onions are coming back and kale, cilantro, and lettuce have sprouted from seeds leftover from the fall. I planted spinach, radishes, and peas a couple of days ago and I expect to see sprouts soon. I wouldn’t have minded a longer winter, but once the growing begins, I’m in favor of spring.
