Merry Christmas my garden friends.  I went out to pick parsely yesterday and found two Anaheims on my leafless pepper plants.  We have had hard freeze here this week.  we're eating lots of lemons and juicing for the freezer.

Oh also all my roofs would dump snow on it if we ever get any this yr. Would be just fine with me if we don't get any. So far just enough to say it did and it melted right away.

I'll bet that lettuce would grow just fine in an unheated greenhouse and any other cool crops. They probably wouldn't even care about the lower light. I had some over winter in the garden last yr and do wonderfully that spring. It was a red lettuce along with other cool crops. I have a little walk in greenhouse but I'm afraid to put it up without some way to chain it to the clothesline pole so it won't blow away when we get high winds again.

Merry Christmas Vicky I wanted to plant some lettuce and a few things down in the Greenhouse but was waiting to see how bad last months electric bill was from running the heater every day. Well I got it the other day and it went up 100 dollars but that could be from the house being heated also but still wasn't to bad. I turned off the heat to see what next month brings. I did figure one thing out and that was I installed wood panels on my gable ends of the greenhouse and I will probably be taking the south side off and installing clear panels or similar for there is not enough sun light getting in side.

Merry Christmas William. I planted a box of salad, chives, herbs under the grow light in the dinningroom does that count? Too dang cold outside here and I never got around to making tunnels or devising a way to turn the small back yard into a greenhouse for the winter. The sun is kinda low in winter and there are neighbor houses & a wood fence in the way. Give me an other month and I will be out there planting peas and other cool crops. Been chatting on the winter sow group but not sure I feel like buying that much potting soil. We'll see if I actually get any time to myself to really want to plant. I'm working extra taking care of an elderly lady and that doesn't give me any me time. If it is a project I can take with me then it can get done. I did stop into the nursery and bought her a flowering cabbage and 3 pansies for the pot on her patio, since she is chair and bed ridden but she can look out the slider door at her pots of plants.

This page has all gone to Ireland I do think. Merry Christmas to all on Garden Share.

Not many squirrels in the wheat field hills between here and there but if one ran in front of me I probably wouldn't even slow down, dang rats with fuzzy tails. I've had static on my phone lines and my friend says that can be caused by squirrels chewing on the lines and then when it gets wet it causes problems.

Vicky you drive safely and watch for all the Squirrels.

"Here they are referred to as sugar cones and finally they have smartened up and sell them on sticks now  so they are easy to use in arrangements ... Here in the Toronto area they are available everywhere now even at Walmart ..."

"Lovely, Love the big pine cones a friend sent me a few from Vermont, I have never seen any that big here in our area. I guess I may have to go look around the pine trees in another location."
