We are starting off February in an exciting way, with something new. On Saturday, February 6th, we are hosting Ladies' Day here at Greenhouse Garden Center. Ladies join us for fun, refreshments and lots of great ideas with opportunities to take home neat stuff!
We have gotten together with Carson City Paint Mart, A Very Fine House and Artisan Cafe to bring some excellent guest speakers to talk about designing and decorating inside and outside your home. Fawn Chang is an international designer and color and design consultant for Pittsburgh & Porter Paints.
Kevin McFaul, Floral Designer for Winward Silks, Tricia Lincoln, Interior Decorator and Owner of A Very Fine House, and Jeanne Dey, Manager of Artisan Cafe and Karen's Kupcakes will also be joining us.
In addition, Lisa Meggerson, Landscape Designer of Greenhouse Garden Center, Tiffany Wickham, Design Consultant for our gift shop and David Ruf, Owner of Greenhouse Garden Center will be on hand. This event costs $20 to attend. Reservations are required and may be made in person or over the phone by calling us at 882-8600. Spend all day or pick and choose which speakers you want to see.
This month and March can be tricky months. We will start to experience some sunny, warm days - especially towards the end of the month. Don't be fooled, because it is still winter and snow and freezing temperatures can come at anytime. Keep in mind that if we start to experience several days of warming that is a perfect opportunity for weeds to start growing.
Pre-emergents need to be used now to avoid the annual infestation of weeds that will appear. Deer, rabbits and voles are very active and can cause fatal damage to landscape plants during the winter months. Be vigilant about checking your plants for chewing damage.
and let us help you find the best products for you to control these critters. We have many organic options both for repellents and bait.

Remove 80% of the salt water from the pond for healthy fish and plants. Add fresh water slowly over a 2 week period.
What You'll Need:
1 lb. ground beef
1 cup finely ground breadcrumbs
1 tbsp. olive oil
2 16 oz. cans condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 16 oz. bag of egg noodles
Salt and pepper to taste
Step by Step:
In a mixing bowl combine ground beef, bread crumbs, egg and olive oil.
Mix well and then form small meatballs and place on a foil-lined baking sheet.
Bake in a 350 preheated degree oven for 15 minutes, remove from oven, allow to rest and set aside.
In a large stock pot or sauce pan, boil 6 cups of water; add egg noodles. Let cook 7 minutes, or until done.
Remove from heat and drain , first reserving 1 cup of the water from the noodles. DO NOT RINSE! Just drain them and set aside.
In the same stock pot or sauce pan, empty two cans of cream of mushroom soup, the one cup of reserved water from the noodles, and whisk while you cook on medium heat. Gradually add another 1/2 cup of water and let the soup come to a boil.
Once the soup has boiled, remove from heat and season to taste. Take the prepared meat balls and put them in the pot with the cream of mushroom soup, allow the meatballs to get fully coated and rest in the sauce for 5 minutes.
Place a serving of noodles on a plate and ladle out meatballs and sauce over the noodles.
Serve with grated cheese (your favorite is always best) on top.
This is the most delicious recipe for Swedish meatballs you will ever make and will surely be a crowd pleaser!
