With the wind and snow whipping on Tuesday, a small crew was happy to work in the balmy greenhouse to transplant 912 tomato plants into their pot-bags.
As the bitter cold and snow continued into Wednesday, we wondered how we had managed to pick the coldest week of the year to do this—causing several of us to worry through the nights. Our greenhouse alarm system can call up to 3 people if the temperature drops below 45 degrees or the power goes out. It calls my son Jay first, the second call goes to me, and we don’t have a third person—so if any of you would like to be that third person to get a call—we’ll be happy to sign you up to share in our worry!!
Unfortunately–the call came last night when one of our furnaces went down (permanently). So many thanks to Jay who was up through the night, putting a back up heat source in place, and helping to install a new furnace this morning with the very responsive crew from Stear’s Heating and Air Conditioning.
Still loving the snow! Sorry to those of you who would like spring to get here quick–our orchards and vineyards are loving this extra snow–seeming quite content to remain dormant and hope that spring will arrive at the normal time this year.
Many thanks to all of you who completed our survey, we really appreciate your feedback. If you have not had a chance to take our survey yet, we are giving you another opportunity before we complete the results next week.

Enjoy the snow!
Beth and everyone at Corey Lake Orchards
