temperature at 10:30 AM isn't very warm. 43 degrees with a high today of only 55. Cloudy most of the day with partly cloudy sky this afternoon, See what that means? Low tonight after the sky clears off is 33 degrees. Looks like Sunday again will be cool at 56 degrees but next week we will have temperatures in the 70's and 60's. That will be better. Stay warm, stay safe.
We are OPEN. Saturday here till 6. Sunday from 11-4. I am pretty excited for you to see what we have grown for you the gardeners and still growing plants. We are completely full in the greenhouse even with moving out 2 wagons of plants. We will move more out next week, so we can continue to grow plants for you.
In the past years, we have had always had a big OPEN HOUSE with a meal and all for you. But with the Covid last year we didn't have one. I have to tell you the truth it has saved my lots of work. As I always cooked the food, helped with the set up and had volunteers serve it. We would serve around 300 to 400 meals in the three days. Sue from KLMJ said to me on the opening day how calm I was and I had to tell her it was because of no serving a meal and all that went with it. This gave me time to really concentrate on growing the plants and having them ready for you.
I know it will be a little slower this weekend with the cooler weather as many gardeners come and get plants and go and plant them. I think that is a great idea. The perennials, trees and shrubs will be coming next week. Roses will be in that order also. It is an on going process of adding plants to the garden racks, and tables to meet all of your gardening needs.
I will be here Monday thru Saturday 9-6, Sunday 11-4. Every day till the 4th of July which will be 75 days open in a row. Glad to do it.
I need to thank all that has helped with planting. Lyle and Ann Chambers, Debbie Brunner I couldn't have done it without them. Also thanks to Larry and to our grandson Dylan for putting in a side walk to the greenhouse. With all the wheel tall carts we have it will be awesome to have the sidewalk for taking them outside. What a great experience for both of them to do this together. Corbin was excited to be able to walk on it. MEMORIES from the greenhouse.
I suppose I better get to work. I am going to work with succulents today. I will just get a good start on them as we have one wagon full plus more to go out on the second wagon. Stay safe, stay warm.
