A greenhouse?....for me??




Hello everyone. Hope you all had a wonderful week! The days have been so pretty and I have been spending a lot of my time outside. Thanks to the thoughtfulness of my sweetie, I will be spending even more time outside. He surprised me with a greenhouse. Maybe because of our 25th anniversary approaching, or maybe I have taken up all of his space in his workshop, placing my baby plants where they will stay safe from the wind and the cold. Either way, I am delighted. He has just now got the frame up. The wind has been so harsh and hard that it is impossible to work on in these elements. I picked a spot to build it that I have been working on for the past year . One side has my tulip and daffodils planted and there was just enough room for the green house. The morning glory climbs the small fence each year and I have raised flower beds that run along the side. The cedar trees help serve as a wind break and also shade against the hot west sun in the afternoon. The space gets the early morning east sun and noon sun overhead. I can't wait for it to get finished and for me to get it filled! Do any of you have greenhouses and lots of advice? I would love to hear from you!

Yay! I'm so happy for you, Kathleen! That looks like the greenhouse of my dreams. Tell your Sweetie when he gets done with yours, there's a gal in Tennessee that wants to see him! LOL
By the way, I loved your last post when you said selling eggs made you feel like you were selling things from off your farm- good for you! Don't it feel great?

Hi "our family" thanks for stopping by. Yes, I have quite a collection of cats! Hi Paula, how are the baby chicks? The further along my Sweetie gets on the greenhouse, the more he knows he does not want to build another. LOL. Hi, Julie, good to hear from you! Blessings, Kathleen

What a wonderful gift - guess I should have put more "stuff" in my DH's workshop so I might have moved him that direction! If you read FoodieFarmGirl on blogspot she uses her greenhouse year around. Bless you - in West Texas a green house is a huge goodie! You can have home grown foods even in most of the winter with a simple heater in there. WOoHoo keep us posted on the progress
