Blooms in the greenhouse, May 8, 2012

Today, Jean and I put the shade cloth on the greenhouse. Since the top of the greenhouse is about 14' high, handing it over is impossible. We roll out the shade cloth on one side of the greenhouse, then on each end I tie a rope attached on the other end to a baseball and throw the baseball over. Then we each grab the rope on the other side and pull the shade cloth over the top of the greenhouse. The shade cloth probably makes about a 10º difference on the inside. It looks like there will be some good seed setting weather ahead for the next week as they are showing our temperatures to be in the high 70ºs. I do have a few more seedlings to show you today.
That is it for today. If you are having too much rain where you are, please send some to us. Bloom is beginning in the field.
Life is very, very good.
