Oh my, I can hardly believe over a month has flown by since my last post. It is past time for an update of what is going on in the greenhouse.
When I posted last it was practically empty. We had a night of below freezing temperatures a couple of weeks ago. I moved my plants into the greenhouse. The tomato plant you see near the left hand side looks sad, but it has quite a few tomatoes. I am crossing my fingers that they will grow a bit and ripen.
On the other side of the greenhouse are lots of pineapple plants, the lettuce, and a few ferns and other flowers.
Remember that container of dirt that I planted lettuce seeds in about a month ago..... Here is it. This picture was taken after I had clipped a bowl full of lettuce. I have missed homegrown organic lettuce. The never ending fresh lettuce in the middle of winter is one of my favorite benefits of a greenhouse.
The pineapple on one of the larger plants is growing well. We should be eating fresh pineapple in a month or so. (I do not know why the picture rotated itself.)
Some of the cuttings I took are showing signs of life. I hope this means they are growing roots as well. I am trying to be patient and will check them at the end of this month.
This biggest surprise to me what how quickly the dwarf lemon tree has grown. I should have put it in the greenhouse a month or so sooner. It went from looking okay to being covered in little bloom buds. I can hardly wait until they open. It seems like that happened overnight!
