No Greens Yet

Winter blew in about three weeks early this year.  At first I thought Mother Nature was just teasing us, as she likes to do in November with some here-this-week-and-gone-the-next snow, but no, she meant business this time — lots of snow and shiver-me-timbers cold.

With no sun to speak of, I haven’t tried growing anything in the greenhouse yet.  There is one forlorn little left over campanula just sitting on the shelf awaiting it’s fate.  We’ll see what happens to it.

There really is a little plant in the tray.

It’s been a little bit surprising to see that, even on cloudy days, it stays warmer in the unheated greenhouse than outside.  Today, for example, it is 24 F outside, yet inside, it is still above freezing.

A little cold for growing?

At least the snow is pretty.  I took this shot looking out the door of the greenhouse a few days ago.

Someday, the greenhouse will be living up to its name, but not for a while, I’m afraid.
