There is so much excitement in the air when the first seeds go into flats in the greenhouse. It is inevitable that something needs to be fixed as we start up the greenhouse. The first challenge was triumphant. The fan in the heater was shaking the whole unit. I took a part some pieces and tried tightening up some bolts to no avail. I called the manufacturer and he told me to first loosen the spacers, realign the spindle of the fan, and then tighten with the correct tolerance. After two attempts I fixed the heater. It felt great. Rolling with a bit of confidence I started up the closed loop heating tubes that warm the root zone of plants on our greenhouse tables. I have done this before, however for some reason this time I over looked a valve to shut off to properly bleed the system of air. Since there was air in the system it was not functioning properly and it appeared that hot water was coming from where cold water should be, and vice versa. I called the plumber that installed it and told him that it might be piped backwards. Kind of strange thinking considering it has worked for the past 4 years. The plumber came over and showed me the step I was missing. We shut the correct valve, bled the lines of air, and all of the sudden it worked. It was fortunate that the plumber and I have always respected each other so the bill was for a couple dozen eggs. It is really important to have people that will help you when you run into problems. It is even more important to always treat people with respect, especially those that deserve it, because it will come back to help you when you need it. On opening day, after the problems were fixed, we had two chefs, one writer, a nurse, and two farmers beginning the cycle of planting seeds into flats so we can have vegetables to feed our community. It truly takes a great community to gather around food to keep us all in balance.
