Yes but it is still winter and snow is due to arrive Thur.

Fires and high winds not a good combination. 70 I wish, if you are having 70s why do you need a green house to grow now? Isn't cabbage a cool crop?

Well this morning is leading to another great day. I will go down and check out my cabbage I have growing over the winter months in the greenhouse garden bed, they are growing but slow for there is no heat in there and I wanted to experiment to see what would happen. I go down and water every so often and that's about it. Supposed to be about 70 again today and only light winds. Lots of fires here yesterday just one fire burned 2000 acres and we had 9 different fires. I might even clean the greenhouse up a little before next month for that's when all my seeding starts.

Was windy here too, blowing the dog door flap open. Think it calmed down some now.

Just took my daily walk for my heart to repair and the wind was something else.  It was 60 and climbing for 70 . I can't do anything anyways for it's getting cold again and supposed to snow on Thur. to early for gardening for me.

Raining buckets and only in the 30s today. Good day to be hanging in the easy chair all day dreaming of gardening, looking thru the seed catalogs.

I will plant more geraniums around just out side the shade house, they attract the aphids and white fly and might and its a big might, help with keeping then off the veggies. I,d love to get some beneficial bugs, but don,t know where I would get them. I guess I could google it and see if there is anywhere close to buy them. There some lady bugs and praying mantis in the garden but not enough to control.

Wet and rainy here & 34 degrees.

Comment by Vicky Myers on January 15, 2015 at 10:53am

White flies are a different pest. Blue is an ok dog I don't like the barking all the time dogs after putting up w/them for the past 20 yrs in town. She does think she is a lap dog but she is way to big for that. She also sneezes on me and licks me all the time. Grrrrr.

I just quit growing the things that I know attract the nasty bugs. Do you use beneficial nematodes? They are supposed to help with pests. As soon as I can afford to get some I will be getting them. Beneficial wasps would be good to get too, praying mantis and green lace wings.
