Checking on My Tropical Plants

As many of you know, I have a sizable collection of tropical plants at my Bedford, New York farm. Caring for these plants means following a strict schedule, particularly at the end of the warm season. During the colder months, these plants are all gathered, moved and stored in a special greenhouse down near the chicken coops, where temperatures and humidity levels can be closely monitored and adjusted when necessary.

Here in the Northeast, we woke up to freezing temperatures and another light layer of snow, this morning. Thankfully, in my tropical hoop house, where the temperatures range from the upper 50s to 80-degrees Fahrenheit, my warm weather specimens continue to thrive.
