Logee's annual company picnic

Our annual picnic last week was not held in its usual grassy spot because the land was being prepared for our new energy efficient greenhouse. Plus, the weather was questionable.

We needed a spot and greenhouse manager, Rick Logee had the perfect solution. He and his crew cleared out half a greenhouse that was slotted to be removed the next day and turned it into a temporary picnic pavilion.

Surveying the scene.

Part of our picnic set-up.

Some of our growers:Claudia (standing), Paula (in red), who runs our tissue culture lab, Kathy(in blue), a veteran grower; and Kim ( a former grower, now customer service rep).

Nate, who is a grower and does our Integrated Pest Management is pictured here sitting with his girlfriend Laura.

The party in full swing!

Allamanda cathartica 'Cherries Jubilee' growing in the corner.

Rick and Korey talking shop. Notice in the background flowering Tobacco (Nicotiana alata) and a spiky plant that is home to a friendly garden snake.

Tiffany and Amy leaving the party to go back to our retail shop. A papaya (T.R. Hovey) outside the door.

The next day, Pete is taking down the greenhouse and

The steel poles are being erected.
