Have you ever had one of those moments when you realize you are kind of a dummy or just really silly? I had one of those the other day about our greenhouse. I'm actually a little embarrassed to even share this with everyone, haha. So the other day someone asked how our greenhouse is doing, and then they asked how we were pollinating our veggies. To which I pretty much said what do you mean, and as soon as I send that it hit me like a ton of bricks. Our greenhouse doesn't allow any bugs in to pollinate them, and I felt just absolutely silly. I guess I should cut myself a little slack seeing how I've never grown anything before much less in a greenhouse, so maybe it's ok I didn't think of it before, right?
Anyways I promptly did some research in how to pollinate our plants and I think our self pollinating program was a success, I should know for sure in the up coming weeks.
|Our peas plants shooting for the stars, hehe.|
|Hopefully a successfully pollinated zucchini|

It's kind of ridicules how excited I still am about all our plants, but I have a feeling Will might be even more excited than me. Yesterday I walked out into the greenhouse to see will planting 45 new pea plants, haha! We are going to have to figure out a new configuration for our greenhouse to accommodate all of them, I will be sure to share some pictures with you all.
Now onto a little problem we have been having that hopefully someone can help us with. So now that we have made the house all tight (all the doors and windows are in) we need to relocate one clever little mouse out of our kitchen area. We bought a no kill trap and put some peanut butter in there for him (I once heard mice love peanut butter) and nothing, so we thought we would spice up the deal with some cheese on top and still nada. So anyone know a type of food a mouse just can't resist? I would really just like to get this little guy out of the house. Seriously any help would be wonderful.
Hope everyone is having a great Monday!
