Gardening Notes. Dec. 28th, 2016

I planted some peas (British Wonder) and radishes (French Breakfast) in the greenhouse. It was a cloudy day, but not super cold and working in the greenhouse warmed me up quickly. I had been meaning to do some planting for the last week and a half, so I figured it was time I get to it!

Not much to see at this point, unless you like looking at dirt in containers like I do. I like to imagine what will come forth from these pots of dirt.


I used up my 12 gallons of saved rainwater preparing and planting. They are calling for more storms starting late Friday and lasting through the week, so I expect to refill the buckets. It is somewhat unusual for us to have rain in the forecast for seven days straight, even in December. We shall see.



What’s Happening in the Greenhouse?

The wind is howling today, although the temps. aren’t really bad. I think it is about 58 degrees, but the north wind makes it seem a little more chilly. (My apologies to all of you back East who are experiencing real cold!)

So, what is happening in the greenhouse today?

I do look forward to fresh sweet peas in a few months. The greenhouse is a wonderful place.

Time to Move.

We started to move plants into the greenhouse this weekend. There is more to do, but I think as long as we finish by the end of the week, all should be well. It was another beautiful weekend with highs in the mid-upper 70s and lows in the 40s. (11/4/12)
