Writing the March newsletter always gets me really excited for spring. February is kind of the month that we knock the rust off and slowly start getting into our planting season. Come March we are in full stride and things really start to take off inside our greenhouse.
Over 14 million plants are just sitting and waiting to be planted, it is amazing to think that we accomplish that much in one growing season. Some of the plants start from seed, some from plugs, others from bare root, and some from cuttings.
The Christmas music is now playing around the greenhouse and the strong fragrance tells me that it is that time of the year again. All of our Christmas trees and Christmas décor are now in and it is time to come in and spread the holiday cheer.
The cold weather has officially moved in and another season has seemed to have flown by! On to the next as they always say and I could not be more excited. Out with the pumpkins, and in with the Spruce tips, kissing balls, and Christmas trees.
This is by far my favorite time of the year, and easily my favorite month! Hunting season is upon up and with the cool mornings it feels great to bundle up. Not only is it my favorite month, but around Pahl’s there is everything a person could ask for.
Fall is literally around the corner and one of my favorite times of the year. The State fair is in full swing, squash is starting to come in from our fields.
I like to refer to August as the limbo month of the garden center world. Everyone is in the midst of summer and have seen their flowers grow into the beautiful full plants we knew they’d become.
Hard to believe it is already July! I always remember thinking July is the sign that summer is halfway through and school is just around the corner. We recently planted all of our mum pots for this fall.
Flower buds are popping, Bees are buzzing, and the slow panic of “what am I going to do with my house this spring” starts to slowly become a reality.
April is always an exciting month for me in the greenhouse. The chaos really begins, space starts to become none existent, more and more people start to come in with excitement, and the colors seem to miraculously change overnight.
