As we approach winter, so far the weather has been surprisingly mild.  Nights have been normally chilly into the low thirties and upper twenties, but during the day it has usually been in the sixties which makes for a nice warm greenhouse!

Temperatures took a serious dip during the past week.  This month as a whole has been very mild, but an unseasonable cold front moved in and just a few days ago, overnight temperatures went below freezing.  Thankfully, the plants in the greenhouse made it through just fine.

The past couple weeks, outdoor highs have been near or in triple digits.  Two nights ago, we had a crazy cold front come in that dropped temperatures forty degrees!  (Glad I keep an eye on the weather report!)  A few hours before the front moved in, I turned off the greenhouse misters and turned up the thermostat on the fan to help retain some heat so the cold would not be such a shock for the plants.

Okay, so September is usually hot here in Southern Nevada.  This year is has been above normal so I have not been able to start the fall vegetables yet.  That's okay, I suppose!  I'd really like to be starting seeds right now, perhaps next week...

Seems like the usual, August is hot, hot, hot.  Did I mention that August is hot?  Fortunately, most of the plants seem to love the managed conditions in the greenhouse.  The mesquite trees and the other desert plants that I have started are growing like crazy.
