101....and I'm not Done!

Welcome! I have been asked over and over to post about what's going on in the greenhouse.
Well....here it is...in a huge mess. I am up to 101 trays of plants, and still have a few to go.
Let's take a tour...
The photo above is to the left when you first enter. The really big ones are the Petunia trays.
This one is the long wall on the right of the door. As you can see...some things are still VERY small.

A view from the back by the desk....
This is the Blue and the white Bacopa....coming along nicely...It is the first year I have been able to get my hot little hands on seed for Bacopa and I am happy with the progress.
The Swedish Ivy is getting it's fuzzy look...
Hey Justine!!! These are your Pepper Plants! There are only 5 of them.
A close up of the lobelia that actually germinated. This is not a good year for Lobelia seeds...many did nothing at all so far. I have to re-seed some of these.
The Trailing Verbena is doing great! So are the Petunia's beside them.
Some close up's of the Geraniums. Say "fertilize!"...
It is hard to see the Marigolds. They are up! I am a little surprised they are up already, as I only planted them two days ago!
What a horrible mess!!!! I am not sure which is dirtier...the greenhouse...
.....Or my fingernails!
It is almost time to start making my hanging baskets and some of the pots...That should free up some space. I just hope I have enough plants when I am done! The next tour will be much cleaner...I promise!
Well....It is well after midnight, and I need a shower. Thanks for taking a trip to the land of Dirt!

I'm never happier than when I have dirt under my nails. You sure have a lot of plants. Do you sell plants, or are they all to plant in your yard?

Jessica said...

Elbows deep in dirt = therapy. :)

Love, J

foxxy said...

Everything looks like its growing nicely. I only have 1 tray and I can't get that to grow.

Betty said...

I am so glad to see you and your dirty fingernails out there in your greenhouse! It is nice to see something growing too. Still looks so gray here.

The smell of fresh dirt in the spring in wonderful. I am about as anxious as you to see how you "do" everything in hopes I can learn alot.

Dawnie said...

what a lot of work your doing,,but glorious work! I cant wait to see the outcomes once they bloom and get planted. because of you, I've started picking up some really neat yard decorations. I found a gate yesterday that normally I would not have gotten but did, it should look neat once i get going.

Unbelievable! Your greenhouse is looking very, very lush, Tootsie :) That makes me wanna take pics of mine and get y'all updated too.

I'll be in Edmonton on Monday....the Big Guy is comin' too. Also, my daughter and son-in-law, to help with my presentation. It's gonna be a big affair!

I just knew you were hiding in the greenhouse!! Hope everything is going well. Why do you get to go to Montreal? Is it a big trip for you. I think I missed something here! I guess that's not too unusual since life has been nuts around here lately! Cindy

What does a bacopa look like? I've never heard of it.

I cannot believe you planted all those trays. It's insane!

ARGH...your green house makes me DROOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm sitting her whining to my hubby about how bad I want a greenhouse. And he is totally ignoring me lol I'm so ready for spring so I too can get dirt under my fingernails! And I can't wait to see what kind of magic you create with all those plants!

SweetAnnee said...

Oh I wish I was close..I'd come help whenever you wanted.. you could teach me.

To nuture a Garden is to walk with the Lord.

Hey Toots,
You have been busy; I guess I didn't realize last week when I spoke to you that you was doing all this in that green house. When I just saw this post you blew me away. Wow, what a lot of work and no wonder you have the most wonderful, beautiful flower garden in your neightbor and mine. This is awesome girl.

momstheword said...

Your greenhouse is amazing. You are amazing! I was just looking at all my garden weeds today and telling my husband maybe we should just get rid of the garden. It's to much! Then I see the stuff you do and I'm amazed. Of course, I'm allergic to pollen so I'm always miserable out there.

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

Oh Tootsie! I want to be YOU for a week. Your greenhouse looks like hog heaven to me. How fun it would be even to tour it in person and have you show me around and point out what everything is. I have never heard of bacoba.(I was going to write that word down...I may have butchered it!)

Do you sell any of your plants or do these all go to your gardens???

I appreciated your kindness on my blog. :)

Hey, gf! Everything is looking great. Your hard work is starting to pay off. Your seedlings look very lush and happy. I can't wait to get dirt under my finger nails.

I want to thank-you for visiting my sister at RMS. If you knew her story you'd want to hurt her soon to be ex. He hurt her and her kids in a huge way.

Thanks for letting me know about the word verification. I miss my old blog. What way I thinking?? LOL I wasn't thinking!!
Hugs, Terrie

Happy To Be said...

Hey sweet Tootsie...now girl I see that GREEN thumb and as for those finger nails I know a Lady in Canada that can take care of those for you...heard she is real sweet and won't even charge you a cent ha ha!! Now your greenhouse is only to be bursting at the seams like it did last year girl..
I was at Wallyworld today and Toots they wanted $15.00 for a hanging pot of needle point ivy..can you beleive that?? And girl its the only thing I can grow besides bulbs..I told Len I will be busy giving my ivy a hair cut and planting them in hangers..Hope you have a great weekend..and playing in the dirt is good for the soul..it belongs to God...hugs and smiles Gl♥ria
