What a Winter!

I’m sure all of you are as tired of cold weather as we are.

Winter presents its special challenges in the greenhouse. Snow and ice mean staying up at night and checking the greenhouses to make sure the load of snow is not too heavy. We beat the plastic to get it off. Frigid nights mean our potting soil has to be brought inside the greenhouses 2 or 3 days ahead of time to have it thawed and ready to use. With the especially cold temperatures this winter, a lot of our plant shipments have been delayed…too much of a chance of them freezing. Then we won’t even talk about how much propane we use on cold nights and cloudy days!

Thankfully, it seems like winter is losing it’s hold. Think Spring!!!!!
