  • GREENHOUSE UPDATE

    Posted on April 28th, 2011 Pam No comments

    These are lettuce and cabbage that I planted on April 12, 2011. They look pretty good.

    Here is four 4" packs of onions and four 4' packs of Fennel. They were planted on March 22,2011. I will be transplanting the fennel into their own 2" pots in the next few days. The onions will go right into the ground. With a plastic row cover.

    Here is one of my secrets how I get the seeds to germinate quickly. I put a plastic disposable shower cap over four 4-packs. It keeps the heat and moisture in. These are in my unheated greenhouse. Most of the seeds will germinate in about 10 days, even in cool weather.

    Here is another experiment I am trying. I am covering plants that have just started to come up with paper. It should keep the heat in, we'll see.

  • THINK IT THROUGH THURSDAY, MEMORY

    An elephant never forgets. After all, what does it have to remember?

    No man has a good enough memory to be a successful liar.

    Most people would rather look backward than forward because it is easier to remember where you’ve been than to figure out where you’re going.

    Some people remember a lie for ten years but forget the truth in ten minutes.

    Three things indicate we are getting old. First, the loss of memory — and we can’t remember the other two.
