Growing in the greenhouse

Volunteers from Wallingford's Growing Food, Growing Community are growing 100s of starts for giving gardens this season. Little sprouts are coming up in the greenhouse. Once they have their "true leaves" they'll be transplanted into 4" pots, grow a little more, and make their way to the garden.

The "true leaves" are just coming out on this spinach. After a plant has its true leaves, the "seed" or cotyledon leaves will eventually turn yellow and fall off.

Seeds start out on the heating pads. Once they sprout volunteers move the trays to other shelves to make room for more.
