I was asked how our greenhouses were with the wind. Doing ok. There is a noise with the blowing. But two layers of plastic with a fan blowing air in between. Keeps the plastic tight so it does not ripple just darn cold with the temperature and the wind. I have to have doors open as the sun heating up the air and the moisture it gets really warm. Plants like it all.
I am planting cacti yesterday. It is a bit tricky to get them in the dirt. You can tell when you touch them in the wrong place. Watering all the time. Lyle and Ann Chambers have been helping me with planting and they are doing a great job. I am excited when I water to see how well the plants are doing. They are growing. As I tell my customers, it is a magical place the greenhouse, we plant, we water and they grow.
Good Friday today. I know some are going to be planting potatoes. I just wonder what the ground temperature is and how wet the soil it? Give it some thought. We will have spring like weather soon, then it will be time to do all of this. Have a Blessed Easter with family and friends.
When we garden, don’t look at the calendar, see what is happening in nature will tell us when to plant. I know all of you are anxious to start the gardening season. I promise you it will be here soon.
We all have seen this before but feel like it is worth sharing today poem. ENJOY
Plant For A Good Life Poet: Unknown
Plant three rows of peas:
Peace of mind
Peace of heart
Peace of soul
Plant four rows of squash:
Plant four rows of lettuce:
Lettuce be faithful
Lettuce be kind
Lettuce be obedient
Lettuce really love one another
No garden should be without turnips:
Turnip for meetings
Turnip for service
Turnip to help one another
Water freely with patience and
Cultivate with love.
There is abundance in your garden
Because you reap what you sow.
To conclude our garden,
We must have thyme:
Thyme for God
Thyme for study
Thyme for prayer
All have a very Blessed Easter. This is what it is all about. Till next time this is Becky Litterer, Becky’s Greenhouse, Dougherty Iowa firstname.lastname@example.org 641-794-3337 cell 641-903-9365
