Currently on the workbench, I have some doors cut and ready for assembly that will cover the two beds inside the greenhouse. I will write more on this project next week. One bed I will use to plant the lettuce and other greens that have sprouted under the lights. The other bed I want to use to raise tomato, pepper and other seedlings. This small greenhouse will not need much supplemental heat. A small electric heater should provide an ideal environment for these seedlings to turn into food for our table.
As might be expected, the bird feeder in Abe's Beer Garden has been quite busy. A steady parade of Blue Jays, Rufus Sided Towhees, Downy Woodpeckers and other birds stop by to feast on the offering of black sunflower seed. They birds appear happy with this high nutrient food that supplements their diet. With the heavy snow covering the ground, their normal diet of wild seeds is unavailable.
By next week, the warmer temperatures will begin to melt the snow. By the last of the month, Abe's Beer Garden should have with a nice, bright carpet of daffodils and hyacinths. It will be a welcome relief from the snow.
