I think I will definitely get the hang of the greenhouse just in time to leave. Everything is growing really nicely and we are averaging ten pounds a week, which is enough for 3 salads a week. That is just for lettuce. There are four brand new cucumber plants in the center and four that are starting to grow cucumbers in the front hobby system. There are also eight tomato plants that have tomatoes, but they are still green. So we should start to get much more soon!

I have loved being in charge of the greenhouse and doing all of the planting and harvesting, but it will never replace working outside in the dirt and sun. I look forward to lots more gardening next summer when I am home. For now, I will continue to spend most of my time reading and working in the South Pole greenhouse!
