That was funny, Dave! :laugh: It was kind of like watching one of those old black and white silent films except you're in color. :laugh:

Your greenhouse is a lot smaller than I thought it would be, are you putting planters/pots in there with planted seeds or seedlings?

OMG, a gardening thread!!!!!!!! Did I tell you how much I love you, Dave? :) I have 700+ pictures of my plants in the garden file. :happydancing:

That is a nifty little greenhouse for starting seeds. I speeded the video up even more ;-) I don't have a greenhouse, but I've got the tender plants that have to be schlepped inside every winter down to 4. Good for you to try some propagation.

Neez's greenhouse is amazing, where does she find the time?!?

:Whistle:

I will limit myself to 2 pictures, the foliage and blossoms of Trachystemon orientalis, more commonly known as Russian borage. The leaves are huge and fuzzy, the unusual flowers bloom just as the leaves start to emerge. Last fall I divided the mother plant into about a dozen new starts so now it's scattered throughout my different garden areas.

I expected the flowers to be larger in size since the leaves are so big; just looking at them you'd think they were separate plants from each other, very pretty. :)

Thanks, Bonnie! No, the flowers are probably an inch long while the leaves are easily 2' long or more.

Yes...its only a small Greenhouse...I am using it to raise my seedlings as an overflow, before they get planted in the vegetable patch. I will keep most growing inside...but I dont have a lot of space, so I will use the greenhouse also.

I've so far put some bulbs I need to plant this weekend in their, and started off my Potatoes Chitting :laugh:
