The State of the Greenhouse

You know spring is near when there's some green in the greenhouse- and the greenhouses are looking extra green these days!  We have been keeping busy planting the past few weeks.  Perennials, hanging baskets, early annuals, tropicals...a little bit of everything!

Just for fun, here's a sort of before & after comparison of Greenhouse #1. (It's called "Number One" because it was the first greenhouse built...clever, right?)  This picture was taken about three weeks ago.  You can see the hanging baskets have hardly been touched on the right, and on the left we've got tiny gerberas awaiting transplant.

Same greenhouse, different perspective.  This was the view last week, peeking through the fan vents.  Hanging baskets are now planted and hanging, and every table is full of plants.  As I passed by today, the bright orange and yellow blooms on the Osteos caught my eye and the hanging baskets are growing by leaps and bounds!

And the views outside of the greenhouse are pretty amusing lately!  Marty has been bottle feeding a lamb and he's still small enough not to get into too much trouble around the plants.  So Diego the Dorper lamb has been keeping us company.  You can see him here hiding behind Marty's knee.  I'm not sure how much longer he'll have free reign of the greenhouses after we caught him nibbling on some Dragon Wing begonias yesterday...whoops!
