This is the time of year when the greenhouse is becoming ripe with life. Flats are beginning to crowd one another. Humidity is high, until the heat-sensitive automatic levers open and it starts to ventilate. Fans come on automatically as well to keep the temperature at 90 degrees or below. The plants get checked daily for water needs. Late winter calls for less water than later on, when some plants wilt quickly in their tiny square of soil. Many crops are started in the greenhouse rather than the field. Especially this time of year when weeds can overcome struggling little seedlings in a NY minute.
