2014 Much progress has been made this past week on the large new addition to the
annual production greenhouse that will greatly expand the product line of
the retail greenhouse during the frenzied May selling season. The hanging
basket drip lines are going up now to be followed by other waterlines for
hand watering and then with the final step of the self-watering benches that
will definitely take a long time to construct as they must be level, fitted
with water and drain lines and finally the gluing together of numerous
ribbed fiberglass panels on which the plants sit in order to be watered.
Last Saturday, the killing frost finished off the flowers along the road and
the big annual pots along the driveway but not the petunias in the gutters
of the Owl market or Calliope geranium hanging baskets. The flowers will
survive until temperatures drop below 28º F although the short days and cool
nights have slowed their flowering and growth.
