Under Lights: A Jump Start for Spring by Molly Pikarsky, TMCNP, Flora and Fauna Manager During the winter months in Central Texas our gardens flourish and thrive as we enjoy the bounty that the cooler weather provides. We are awash in color from pansies, calendula, and snapdragons. Our baskets are brimming with broccoli, lettuce, greens, radishes, carrots, and more. While our winter beds are working away, we have the first stirrings of spring making themselves known in my office, under lights. Richard Martin, who is responsible for our Culinary Gardens, and I have put together a curated collection of heirloom tomatoes for the 2019 season. In mid-December, we built a system with LED grow lights and suitable shelving in the Grounds Department office, and off we went! To date, we have had great germination and growth, and get more excited about the coming season’s tomatoes day by day. We will be pleased to offer our guests these heirloom tomatoes as part of their culinary experience in the coming months. We carefully selected an array of sizes, shapes, and colors, all handpicked for their suitability for our unique climate. I am most excited about some of the interesting varieties, like Lucid Gem, Dark Galaxy, and Mushroom Basket. After the seedlings are robust, substantial little plants, we will transplant them into larger containers, then out to the garden when the danger of frost has passed. We can’t wait to share the bounty with you! If you would like to learn more, we are always happy to talk tomato and look forward to speaking with you during your visit!
