It has been a busy, busy month since I last posted. Unfortunately, I don’t have very much proof because I was too busy to take very many pictures. 🙂 Here is the one photo that I took while we were putting plastic on the greenhouses.


This is during the moment in the process that we have to be human paperweights while everyone gets into position to attach the plastic to the house. That was an exceptional day. We did 6 houses before 10am.

We had a great fall for covering houses. It was a light year as far as how many houses we had to do, the wind stayed calm when we needed it to and I had a great crew this year.

We have been doing maintenance (always) in the greenhouse as well.  We are repainting the squares on the floors of one of the Annual houses and fixed a major low spot in one of the bays.  The squares help to keep our plant rows straight and maximize the number of plants we can fit into an area. As you can tell, they really needed to be redone!


Look at that shiny new fabric!


Another thing that I wish I had more pictures of, is the fall color. Hasn’t it been gorgeous this year? If I had room in my yard, I would be planting a burning bush or a Fiesta maple just for the color!
