So it has been really hot and humid very hard on all of us working at the greenhouse. We watered twice a day to make sure everything stays alive and growing. It did work as all looks really good. If you are in need of gardening stuff, stop on in....we are open 9-6 Monday thru Saturday Sunday 11-4. One of the plants I am really proud of growing is the tomatoes....this is a picture of the Celebrity plants in a large 4 pack. When asked what is my favorite tomato I would say this is it? It is still time to plant tomatoes, peppers, green beans and the garden stuff. When it comes to vine plants like cucumbers, squash, pumpkins you should wait till June 10th here in our zone. Bridget Conway told me that back in the 80's. If you wait till then, you are pass the first round of bugs. Not this year, but our nights are usually cool and the vine plants don't like cool nights. Also had a farmer tell me that he waits to plant his green beans when the field beans are up because then the bugs will stay in the field and not bother his garden. Give this some thought....till next time, this is Becky Litterer, Becky's Greenhouse, Dougherty Iowa firstname.lastname@example.org
