Dear Curiosity Journal,

We’ve transitioned our seeding setup from Greenhouse #3 to Greenhouse #2, where we have access to electricity to run the vacuum seeder and heaters. We celebrate the small victory of dragging neither extension cords nor water hose for our first wave of 2024 seeding. Typically, the waterline to the greenhouses is still frozen in late February and we pull water from the basement to the gardens, which is no small task. What a luxury to have water and power at hand! We’re hoping to take as many more baby steps toward efficiency as we have time and money to move on. Every little time-saver, body-saver, or money-saver makes life on the farm a little bit easier. Today I’m grateful for this infrastructure upgrade, planting future food from a structure with modern amenities.
