Some greenhouses will be seeded next month for transplant. A few housekeeping items. First, get rid of all the weeds in and around the greenhouse. These weeds can harbor insects and disease; do not spray them – pull them out. Second, check the plastic/doors for holes to prevent heat loss and insect entry. Drain float beds, clean them out, and run fresh clean water. Steam clean and bleach clean trays and replace old with new if necessary. Do not leave cigarette butts, trash, dogs, or cats in the greenhouse they bring in insects and disease. Make sure your heating is checked and the generator is ready for cold days or power outages. When filling up float beds, test the water to make sure PH is okay. Make sure you have plenty of inside air blowing to keep air circulating on warmer days. Make sure everything you use with seed and transplanting is clean. Make sure shoes are clean if you are going in and out of the greenhouse. With COVID-19, if you have multiple workers in the greenhouse make sure they have masks and hand sanitizer. The cleaner the greenhouse the fewer problems you will have from insects and disease.
