Green House Insulation

Well I said I would get out to get pictures of the insulation that I put up in the Green House. Well that is about all I got out for. Must have the flu or just the crud or something . Anyway I did get the pictures and here they are.

Well sorry I guess I have reached the limit of Photos for this blogs free site so have to go back and decide what to remove or up grade.

Starting To Plant

I got my shelf and my potting bench in the Greenhouse.  Started some rosemary cuttings, and a few peppers, basil and lettuce . I also divided a Peace lily (Spathiphyllum ‘Mauna Loa’) that was in my mom’s room . It had out grown the pot so I made 5 pots out of it. Yes it was very over grown for the pot.

Here are the cuttings and seedlings. I have also started some peat pot soaking for the seeds I have on the way.IMG_0018IMG_0019IMG_0022IMG_0021

Put the peppers up high for the heat and sun.

The bloom is fake we put that i for my mom before the plant bloomed on its own.

Moving Day For The Goldfish

OK I know I said I would be putting Bluegill in the system….and I still am . I just have had a lot going on the last few weeks and I haven’t had a chance get them yet. I do have a couple suppliers in mind here close by . I hope to get up with them before the end of the month.

Today I decided to move the goldfish from the small pond to the new tank. They have been hiding in the bottom behind the filter for a while now. I also wanted to use the pump from the pond to aerate the tank, with a spray bar. So that necessitated the moving of the fish. They seem to be happy and I hope they will eat some of the algae that has formed. The water is staying about 50 degrees or so, which perked them right up.

Here is a shot of the fish …tought to see . They are the orange blob in the back, still hanging close to the botom.IMG_0009

The tomato and other potter plants are doing well.  The temp does drop down at night to the upper 30’s ( on really cold nights) but stays above 50 most of the time, and gets to the mid 80’s during sunny days.

My Kalonchoe is getting ready to bloom. This a cutting off one I gave my wife that got leggy and looking bad.  Interested to see how it does.

The tomatoes that I planted in the grow beds are still hanging in there. I also planted a couple of onion ends and a carrot top to see what happens.  The last onions I did this with really did great. IMG_0003

I pulled the celery that I trans planted from the other system to here. It was looking terible. I found that it had 5 new stalks growning from it. So I cut them off and cleaned the dead and dieing branchs from theem. Then replanted them in with the tomatoes.IMG_0002

My Strawberry is having some issues. I may have to do something about it. The leaves are yellowing ,have to see what the addition of the fish does.

IMG_0006Now here are a few pictures of the old system under ice. Took this a couple mornings ago, it was a bit chilly. I really think the goldfish will be happier in the green house tank.

IMG_0062IMG_0061IMG_0060IMG_0058IMG_0057That was a cold morning, and they are in the shade in the winter time most of the day.  I am planning on taking this down and setting up a single growbed at the end of the pond. For the Growing season. Then bring the goldfish back in here till next winter.
