    It's been a few days since I last showed how the greenhouse was shaping-up.
    Those toms and lettuces are really taking off now.
    Here are the first and most recent pics:

    Everything is really growing nicely. I have tried to put a few things in the greenhouse only now to find out we may have a light frost tonight. Time to get a heater in there to keep things cozy. looks like I've alraedy need to restart some toms. Glad to see you're doing very well.

    WOW, they are really growing fast. What do you feed them?

    Looking really good Sjoerd. It always amazes me just how much difference a few days can make.

    You are right Eileen...As for the outside plants, I always notice an enormous growth spurt when we get a rain after a dry spell too., and that's what I am hoping for at the moment.

    Great looking plants, lots of growth in such a short time.
    You might have told us before but I missed it....what are the cups in the soil around the plants for? Is that how you water them?

    After the lightning storm we had last night I am looking forward to the growth spurt in my yard too.

    I am thinking the cups with water are for humidity purposes....am I right? Or am I completely off base?

    Thanks Glenda. I'm pretty chuffed with them myself.

    Toni & Xylona: The little white coffee cups are plastic and have holes in the bottom. They are directly above the root ball and this is where I give them water.
    If you look from the cups to the plant tops near a pole, that is where the length of the stem is (under the soil) and is developing roots. It is these surface roots that I will be 'feeding' as soon as the first flowers appear.
