Our First Snowfall Of The Season

As stated in yesterday's blog, we had our first snowfall two days ago.  Thankfully, all of the tropical plants are happily tucked away in the heated greenhouses, where snow and freezing temperatures can do them no harm.  However, we are not ready at the farm for snow and we were all relieved that there was very little accumulation this time.  My farm crew needs to get busy erecting the bamboo framing around all of the shrubs for the winter burlap covers.  Once that job is complete, I'll feel better about any further forecasts of snow.
