All Aboard - Destination Unknown By Virginia Bickel

 This story takes four children: Amanda, Peter, Laura and Jason from New York City to a small town in west Texas and describes good times and bad times as they grow from childhood to adulthood


Virginia Bickel's newest book Come September  has just been released. Order it now!

  In Virginia Bickel?s second book, she turns from historical fiction to mystery. Come September is the story of Daniel Lindsey?s quest to identify the young woman found unconscious in front of his store, and to find out what she was doing on Mesa Street, in El Paso, Texas.  She brings to this genre her skill with character development and dialogue. You won't be disappointed.

jan1.jpg (57152 bytes) This months report is a little late, I've been enjoying a short holiday with my fiancee in Georgia USA and only just got home. Here are a couple of photographs of the greenhouses that were taken on the 24th of January 2003. Surprisingly for this time of the year there is still a lot of green on most of the plants. I guess this must be related in some way to global warming, it's only in the last couple of years that the plants have been green at this time of year. There have been some very hard frosts, but the natural gas heater that I use appears to be doing a good job of keeping the cold at bay.
jan2.jpg (57791 bytes) During the colder months of the year we need to be very careful with the watering of all plants. We are aiming to keep them as dry as possible without them getting dust dry. We must try not to get the foliage wet while watering, as this can lead to mildew forming on the leaves in the closed conditions of a greenhouse. The best way of doing this is to stand the pots in a shallow dish of water for approximately ten minutes.
