A sure sign that spring has arrived is beautiful blooms and busy kids in the Chelan, Wash., Agriculture Education Department Greenhouse.
Even though the snow just left the valley floor and still remains on the protected ridges and draws up the sides of the Lake Chelan Valley the gorgeous colors popping out inside the Chelan High School greenhouse let us know that spring is here.
The bedding plants and vegetable starts will be available at the Annual Spring Plant Sale on Saturday, April 29, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The bedding plants are starting through their first blooming cycle, and the peppers and herbs have been out of the ground for a couple of weeks.
The 10 varieties of both heirloom and hybrid tomatoes are planted and the other starts will get planted the week after spring break — all to be just right for the Annual Spring Plant Sale.
FFA members enrolled in the Agriscience and Biological Systems II course are responsible for planting, tending and selling this year’s greenhouse plant crop.
