Veggies planted in the high tunnel today

The cole crops and lettuce was planted in the high tunnel late yesterday and early this morning. The plants were watered in by hand after planting, but the irrigation was set up right after planting so it is ready to go for irrigation and fertigation. The plants in the flats were left out over the weekend to acclimate and some received a little nip from cold temperatures. The vegetables planted included Salanova Red Butter, Green Butter, Red Oak Leaf and Green Oak Leaf lettuce; Bay Meadows, Blue Wind and DiCicco broccoli; Green Caraflex, Alcosa and Super Red mini cabbages; and Cheddar cauliflower.

The plants were left in the tunnel over the weekend to harden. Some were nipped by cold temperature.
