Excited to Grow

Today’s share is an image of me in my greenhouse this evening.  My hubby sneaked up on me to see what all the ‘matter’ was in the Christmas decorated growing space in our winter garden.   This time of year you will find the radio playing 24 / 7 to 101.5 The River which is featuring Christmas music unto the New Year.  The music not only adds to the festivity going on out in the growing area it also keeps critters away from the greenhouse.   I have found tracks from the deer and raccoons that are usually 10 – 20 feet away from the greenhouse landscaped garden on a daily basis.  I can’t imagine if one of those critters came walking into the growing area. that would NOT be good.

THE HUGE ‘cheese-head’ smile on my face is because some of the seeds I started just a few days ago have been soaking up the minimal sunshine we have received.  It has been gloomy, average temperatures in the low 30*s and little sunshine in my neck of the woods this past week.

With a freshly picked Tiny-Tom Tomato in my mouth and the carrots, radishes, and lettuce all sprouting  I SAY bring on the SNOW that is in our forecast this Sunday!

IF you would like to read more about my greenhouse please check out this link : Brens Greenhouse.    I PROMISE to get this years new photos on the greenhouse resource page by NEW YEARS EVE!~     I share this information with you to promote GROWING year-round.  IF this Mommy from the Heartland can do it… so can you!

  1. Thank you so much for helping us out up at the greenhouse. I love your energy and your passion to show others who to garden. Kelly is going to try that recipe you were talking about so I hope you add it to your beautiful website.

    • ANYTIME DAN…. you call and I’ll be out to help. I am hoping to get some of those cookies made this week with my family and I will share those images with recipe on this site. I will also email Kel the recipe tonight.
      Thanks for all the fun today – keep on growing!

    • Thank you Susan…. I’m starting to think I enjoy growing even more so in the Winter as opposed to the summer. The thrill of doing things different from everyone in my neck of the woods and ‘out-smarting’ mother nature by continuing to grow while the gardens outside are covered with snow! 🙂

  2. love it ladybug! I love to read your writings…you certainly are lacking nothing in the talent department…you grow, write and your photos are always fantastic!
    I hope to have myself a schedule this week…it seems the world figures I am a free agent that has nothing better to do than to run to the beck and call of the whole lot! lol
    I am burnt out!

  3. I hope you will help me with my construction next spring . After all you are who inspired me to get the frame and some super amazing plastic. Your cute little green seedlings are totally something to smile about.

    Thanks Friend!
