Headache NO More....

courtesy the greenhouse on a sunny January day! The tempature is climbing to the mid-30*'s as we head into the weekend.  I woke this morning with a horrible sinus headache.  It was so tempting to stay inside take some sinus medicine. The Greenhouse was calling me.........

From the Greenhouse.... my headache was gone after some basic chores were complete.  One of the wonderful benifits of owning your own little greenhouse is the THE HEALTH FACTOR!
A very GREEN Report : 

I have learned so much so far this winter.  It is hard to believe we are half way through January.  I knew this winter would fly by.  I truly believe it is all up hill from here as far as the surviving the winter with the greenhouse being productive.   Not only do we have yummy vegggies ( lettuce,  tomatoes and herbs) growing and providing for my family we have wonderful EYE CANDY!  It is amazing the sweet smell from the mini yellow rose that is blooming in the bottom middle images.  AND HOW ABOUT those snapdragons?  Looking forward to doing some transplanting with those Hens&Chicks in the bottom left corner of the image above.  IF you have any tips on how to cut those little shoots off and have them survive I would love to hear from you!   Promises from the buds with some warming color yet to come is what I see in that Mandivilla bud in the top right image of the collage. 

It has been a productive and a very healthy afternoon in the greenhouse and I hope to share a V-blog with you later tonight with some tips on WATER SOURCE for the Zone 5 winter greenhouse.   Be sure to stop back and share your thought with me. 

I am going to leave you with this WONDERFUL YAWN from Boo Kitty!
Enjoy your Thursday friends.

Hope you get some answers on the transplanting of the babies from the Hens and Chicks...I have wondered the same.
Glad your headache is gone. I view my sinuses as a barometer. When new weather systems come in, I know it!! Yikes.

These plants look healthy and happy in their warm greenhouse. Your toiling sounds like good therapy with positive results.

How wonderful to be able to step into a warm climate in the middle of winter and enjoy all the beautiful plants flourishing.

Healing properties of gardening is fantastic!! I haven't tried this, have heard, as long as there are tiny hair roots on the chicks you can set them gently on some soils and they'll catch...just snip away for the mother plant.
