This is our hardening shed, or transition area. Think of the greenhouse like nursery school. The baby plants have everything controlled for them – food, water, temperature. When they’re old and strong enough to go outside, we transfer them to the hardening shed. This is more like middle or high school – we still control their food and water, but they’re a little more free to spread their wings and grow strong and hardy. They’re teenagers (thankfully, without the usual moodiness). Finally, we send them off into the real world, or plant them in the fields, to grow big enough to harvest and bring to you at the market or in your share!
