Cleaning the Main Greenhouse Windows

A big cleanup is underway inside my main greenhouse.

As many of you know, the central greenhouse at my Bedford, New York farm is home to hundreds and hundreds of beloved plants. I enjoy learning about, and caring for, the many rare and unusual specimens in my collection, but I also enjoy bringing different plants inside my home, especially when I entertain. With its vast span of clear windows, this glass house needs to be cleaned regularly so it functions at its best. Calcium deposits and algae can form on the windows, blocking much needed heat and light from the growing plants. Over the last couple of weeks, Carlos has been working very hard to clean each and every pane - it’s a huge and arduous task, but well worth the time and effort.

I hope you enjoy these photos and please leave your remarks in the comments section below.
