So lets start out with... Its April 17th and snowing outside... Ugh!~
Sorry I haven't posted in awhile guys.. Its just been a crazy spring lead up for me.. Work, Finishing the last leg of our home remodel, and a few other things has made this a busy spring!
So I'm into bloom season! Yay... Here's a few pictures!

So how's the greenhouse going?
Of course- Spider mites have made their way in this year again. I was super selective as to whom I bought from for early shipping. That in turn burned me again. Next year I will introduce no new plants into the greenhouse at anytime period without it coming in with no foliage.
I have been using Predatory Mites for control, but it seems like I'm losing that battle. I'm going to have to go into a rotation of insecticides.
Heating bill wasn't bad this year.. maybe 1000-1200 for the winter so far. I expect one more fill before no heating is needed.
Watering and fertilizing has been normal. Nothing much ado here.
Seedlings are growing well, Hoping for a clear 10 day forecast so I can get them outside very soon.
Seed set seems to be good this year, My scapes are taller this year.. so again.. I guess I need to lower my benches again!
My water benches worked very well for getting many plants watered with minimal effort, that was a huge time saver on my end.
That's about it guys.. I really haven't spent much time in the greenhouse until recently.
Will update again soon!
