I have begun moving many of the other plants from the loft to the gh. I will be moving more in the next week or so as the weather levels out a bit. The baby cuke , vining beans and the tomato will stay in the loft while I start my seedlings this spring. The tomato is stuck up there as it is about 7 foot tall if I was to straighten her all out.
I am still getting a few beans from my plants and others are doing fairly well. Sadly the hutterite soup beans have done no better for me in containers, in a controlled environment than they did outside for me last summer. Not one I am going to bother attempting to grow again. I am realizing after two years of serious indoor with minimal supplemental lighting that if i actually want to eat produce from my plantings inside I needs to plant my indoor garden during the summer. Though they do give me a good jump on spring, the only thing I have been able to harvest regularly are greens and I can grow them yr round in the gh. I am figuring I will need to plant sometime in July in order to achieve my goals of year round fresh veggies other than greens.

I fed most the greens in the table bed to the critters and there were a few peas still growing from my last experiment. I then planted seed for peas, chinese cabbage and spinach. Soon as the other bed warms a bit and i can finish it. I will plant some lettuces and other salad fixins.
We also pulled the wood stove out this past week. This will now give me more open flood space. If I make another raised bed in there it will give me about 65 square foot of gardening space in the gh. I am thinking I may leave it as is until after the spring seedlings move through and make the bed for this summer, fall and winter gardens.
