I ordered a small paraffin heater for one of my greenhouses and two arrived 🧐Either I’m having more senior moments and have ordered twice or Amazon know something about the long term forecast that I don’t!!!! 😂😂 Now I have the dilemma of do I keep the second one (I’m assuming I’ve paid for it) just in case .....?????? #dilemma #paraffinheater #greenhouse #keepingthefrostout #overwintering #tenderplants

It is December and freezing so this harvest of chillies is more than just pleasing! These chilli plants are being overwintered in the greenhouse. I’m very curious to see if these plants will survive the next few months. 😊💚🌶

My poor sage plant. The recent snow may wipe out my hardy herbs that I've scattered around my yard. The oregano and thyme are completely buried, while my potted peppers, rosemary and parsley get more withered by the day. I have watered the indoor plants a couple times, just enough to keep the roots alive. When I first brought them inside they had not yet gone dormant and started sprouting new growth. Now they have quieted down, but grow angsty by the day. My lemongrass is alive but not exactly well, and my dried herbs are still hanging because I don't have a mortar and pestle to crush them. I've just been using them a few sprigs at a time as needed. #overwintering #plants #wnc #wintergarden #savemyplants #amidoingitright #seemsokay #growfood #herbgarden #herbs #peppers #yum #foodwriter #localfood #somethingwitty #gardenjournal #foodjournal

As the leaves and temperatures drop, it might be tempting to forget about your pollinator garden until spring. But don’t call it quits just yet! While it may seem like the bees have vanished for the year, they haven’t actually gone anywhere. ••• Learn about the nooks and crannies bees and other pollinators overwinter in, from hollow plant stems to wood piles! We also include plenty of tips on keeping these important invertebrates safe as you conduct winter garden maintenance. ••• It’s all in our newest blog post: top of the list at xerces.org/blog! ••• 📸: Pure green sweat bee nesting, Katja Schulz / Flickr Creative Commons 2.0 ••• #augochlorapura #sweatbee #nesting #hibernation #overwintering #bees #pollinators #insects #invertebrates #leavetheleaves #conservation #sustainablegardening #savethebees #savethepollinators #invertebrateconservation #xercessociety

ALSA's travel mugs made it all the way up Gonydale on Gough Island, where the current Gough64 field team camps out to do ornithological field work. . These mugs were handed over to the team during team training earlier this year. The #Gough64 team will return to CPT with the S.A. Agulhas II on roughly 10 October 2019. . Thanks for the great pics Michelle* 📷 @michelle_on_goughisland 📷 Michelle Risi (RSPB Birder& Deputy team leader of Gough64). . #GoughIsland #overwintering #fieldwork #Gough64 #ornithology @rspb_love_nature

Overwintering our avocado tree in our room is actually bringing some much needed “outdoors” in!

Baby jalapeno peppers getting bigger and bigger! Somehow, flea beetles found their wat to this plant so time for a neem oil spritz. I've been mindful about keeping the sweet peppers away from these until I got it all under control. Crossing fingers that i can nip this in the bud and finally rid my poor peppers of flea beetles. . . . . . #jalapeno #jalapenos #peppers #babypeppers #spicy #capsicum #hotpeppers #spicypeppers #greenpeppers #greenyourfeed #growyourownfood #thateverydaykira #urbanhomestead #urbanhomesteading #urbanhomesteader #homestead #homesteading #homesteader #homesteaddreaming #winter #overwintering #pottedplant #pottedpepper #december #delicious #eattherainbow #eatlocal #growyourownveggies #plantstagram #healthy

Gray tree frogs are masters of camouflage, their colours change from gray to green depending on what they are sitting on. They only leave the higher treetops to come down to breed, you can also find them around windows and lamps at night feasting on insects. We get many gray tree frogs that are brought in with plants over the winter and come out of hibernation in someone’s house! #graytreefrog #cutefrogs #sundayfunday #froggies #ontariofrogs #amphibiansofinstagram #amphibians #ontarioamphibians #wildlife #wildliferehab #savingfrogs #overwintering #sandypineswildlifecentre

How to provide enough light during winter months without a grow lamp? Place your plants at least one day per week in a place where they can see the sky ☀️ This is not enough to make them grow, but it will keep them healthy during dormancy season 🌱💤

A beautiful comb from the Cathedral Hive. The different color in the wax shows where the honey was stored and where the colony raised brood in the comb. The lighter yellow comb at the top is where the bees stored their honey. The darker comb shows where the brood is being raised in the hive. The bees coat each cell in the broodnest area with a 'shellac', a form of propolis providing an antimicrobial, anti-fungal and antiviral environment for the broodnest leading to a perfect spot for the queen to lay some eggs. And perfect for keeping the hive free of disease. Each time the bee emerges from a cell the bees recoat that cell with the shellac so the queen can again lay in a clean enviroment. When assessing a hive these differences in wax can give you clues to where the brood is being raised in the hive. Ideally in a top bar hive you want there to be honey stored above the broodnest for some very important reasons. One the large band of honey is very accessible to the bees when they are raising their young, mixing pollen and nectar to feed larvae. Secondly the large band of honey acts as an 'insulator' being a heat sink of warmth in the winter to help the bees keep a warm, regulated hive. And in the summer the honeycomb serves as a cooling insulator so that the bees can again keep the hives from overheating and helping them keep the delicate temperature of the broodnest constant. With the Cathedral Hive the larger comb gives the bees ample space for a large band of honey at the top of the comb and this honey equals nutrition, fuel to live and acts, as mentioned above, an insulator against heat and cold. Going into winter the bees will fill empty brood cells with honey and this is called 'backfilling' the comb which will add to the insulation factor of the honeycomb. ⠀ See more images and comb identification on our website https://buff.ly/2AYHqAR⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ ⠀ #bees #honey #cathedralhive #backyardbeekeeping #corwinbell #backyardhive #nature #beehives #beekeepers #insectgram #beesofinstagram #honeybees #overwintering #beekeeping #pollinators #entomology #apiary #biology #apiculture #beekeepersofinstagram #bien

Overwintering some of my pepper plants was one of the best decisions I made all season! Everything I read said that they would survive and have a head start for bext year but weren't likely to continue to produce over the winter, well my habanero and jalapeno plants have shown that to be false in the best possible way! These guys are going to be sliced a d dehydrated and made into habanero powder for fish tacos. Yummy! . . . . . #habanero #habaneros #habaneropepper #capsicum #spicy #spicypepper #hotpeppers #orange #growyourownfood #overwintering #winter #thateverydaykira #urbanhomestead #urbanhomesteading #homegrown #urbanhomesteader #urbangardening #homesteading #homesteader #homesteaddreaming #growsomethinggreen #growyourownveggies #eatlocal #growfoodnotlawns #eattherainbow #delicious #freshproduce #homegrownproduce #pottedplant #pottedpepper

Went to visit a friend yesterday and help her tend to her plants and set up a better space for #overwintering her outdoor containers. Stripped back the leaves from some seemingly dying or dormant #sedum and what do we have here? ... Either they decided to start over or we have a surprise fairy garden of extremely tiny cabbages. 😆 ... #babyplants #gothgardening #plantrehab #newweeknewleaf #containergardening #plantifa #plantifamovement #indoorgardening #houseplantparty #smallspaceliving #mybathroomismypottingshed #plantsaremagic #plantsmakemehappy #plantsmakepeoplehappy #ihavethisthingwithindoorjungles #ihavethisthingwithplants #indoorplants #indoorjungle #urbanjunglebloggers #idrinkandigrowthings #growlights #plantgang #plantlovers #plantcetera #plantnerd #patience

Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Pepper overwintering! This is my first attempt at overwintering so wish me luck🍀🌱🍺🌶 This is the very first superhot I’ve grown. I bought one of those seed growing kits that come with a tin can full of vermiculite, at a middle of nowhere gas stations in Arizona. Had 3 of seeds germinate and I really didn’t treat them as good as I should have during the first 5 months of their growing cycle. Finally planted them in a whiskey Barrel 6 months ago and they started doing better, but then winter has come along and it was just starting to flower so I brought this one inside to give it another shot. Well its been 11 months since sprouting so maybe I’ll get peppers indoors. 🌶🍀🌱 #trinidadmorugascorpion #overwintering #greatbasin #nevada #desert #backyard #containergarden #garden #vegetables #gardening #hotsauce #hotpeppers #hotchili #chilipeppers #peppers #scoville #homegrown #superhots #chilihead #pepperhead #seedlings #seeds #germination #nightshades #vivosun #growlight #generalhydroponics
