Plants in Mac's greenhouse are really doing well this winter. It's not a heated greenhouse, but this year that doesn't seem to matter, the weather has been running about 8 degrees above normal, so high 60's and low to mid 70's.
He's going to have to transplant the tomatoes into pots soon, they're getting tall and crowded. . Our impatiens usually die in the winter here, but they're still going strong this year. We also moved the Hibiscus into the greenhouse, usually we end up covering it in cold weather and last year we lost 2 even though we covered them.
Everything is starting to leaf out here and the air is full of pollen That's scary because winter is no where near over and I know we'll have a couple of freezes before it's through. This weather makes me want to plant but I'll wait. Put in a few bulbs this week but that's it. I know other places are having less than ideal weather and I feel for them, but this has been a great winter for us, so far.
