Christmas Eve 2009

The BIG Snow

First we got an inch of rain and then we got this -

After a little scrapping, the sun started to peak back in.
I went back into the greenhouse in September, after stopping for the summer. This is my second winter since Larry helped me rebuild her. In addition to the salad stuff, I have jade cuttings , airplane plants, Dutch irises, lilies, aloes, and my brave little Norfork pine.
All of it is growing just off the sunlight . No extra heat at all. We have already seen nearly a week solid, of cloudy weather with back to back 13 F degree nights in that spell. That's when my irises were starting to sprout.

The Winter Solstice - 2009

I got a package of seeds for Christmas, from Las Cruces, New Mexico . Thank Bart & Blonde.
I'll start these in the greenhouse tomorrow.

I started my " salad bars " at the end of October. The first cuttings were in the chicken salad tonight. pictures to follow. My greenhouse is going a super job this fall.
