Getting winterized

As I got up this morning it was in the 40's (F) outside. Brewed a cup of coffee, bundled up a bit, let Osita (our dog) have a run, fed "Lady Bug" (our miniature horse), and sat on the deck for a bit. And then we begin "bundling up" the greenhouses and "stuffing" the plants therein. Oh, for more room!

The question this year - as always - which plants do we dare leave out, with protection from the rain, and which ones dare we take the total risk with, letting them get both Oregon rain and cold temps.

If you live in the Portland area, you can help us out though. We're going to be selling plants at the Fall Home & Garden Show during the weekend of October 4, 5, 6 and 7 at the Portland Expo Center. Every plant you buy means more room in our greenhouses!!!



  1. Hello folks,I live in Keizer and getting my greenhouse packed up also.
    The growing season gets shorter every year and the greenhouse gets smaller and smaller,but some how I always have room for more.

    Are you going to have a large selection at the H & G show?
    I'm still kicking myself for missing your open house.

  2. Hi Bob,

    Yes, we expect to have a good selection at the H&G show. Hope to see you there.

    And yes, even when we move up to a larger greenhouse, it seems to shrink every year!
