So it was 18 degrees midday this week and we decided to take a trip to the tropics. In just a little over 5 minutes we were in the tropics soaking up sunshine in 80 degree temperatures! That is what the greenhouse is to us in the winter and it definitely warms the soul.
In between seed planning, we spent the day removing the spent tomato and pepper plants and taking out the trellising. In the next week or so we are hoping to seed a cover crop in our greenhouses. We are waiting for this cold snap to leave before seeding the cover crop for increased probability that the seed will germinate.
Harmon might just become a fine dog at hunting rodents. We have noticed tunnels in the soil of the greenhouse that may be either voles, moles or rats. YES… The mountains have all these species and I don’t quite blame these critters for wanting to live in the tropics.
No more lying gloves or clothes on the ground because it seems that Harmon is into steeling them!
