Here are some photos of some of our new flowers, with fruit trees in the background. At top is a blooming Leucospermum with citrus behind it, the middle photo shows our beautiful Bird of Paradise, and at the bottom is an Agapanthus with buds just about to open, squash blossom, kangaroo paws in top left of the photo, statice in the middle, and one of our big lavender in the rear. The aroma in the greenhouse is amazing! All are making the transition fairly well, adjusting to our intense sun and cool nights.
I have squeezed a few annual vegetables and herbs into the few spaces between all these flowers and fruits and perennial herbs, and of course we continue to cycle through our salad greens.
We had a successful import and planting of our new citrus, berry trees, vines, herbs, and flowers. It is very exciting! The greenhouse is packed with all kinds of delicious and beautiful edibles, and also plenty of exotic flowers for cutting. It will be a busy spring getting everything settled in and getting to know all these plants. Luckily, winter is hanging on here in Routt County, with record breaking snow pack for all of Colorado, ever. Should be an interesting spring… if we ever get to plant outside!
