Planting, potting, and plotting




The weekend was filled with the smell of broken/tilled up dirt, potting containers and seeds being filled and planted, shelves being assembled, tired arms, sore hands, and ideas and dreams being thought out. Thanks for all of your advice everyone, on shelving for the greenhouse. I already had a metal table that I used outside for potting plants..... it fit perfectly into the greenhouse. I was only able to steal away 2 cinder blocks from my sweetie's stash, but being the sweetie he is, he brought home shelves from wal-mart, just like the suggestions from Katy, and they work wonderful.As you can see, the greenhouse looks plain and bare. Hopefully, it will fill with color soon. I think the best thing I am really going to enjoy about having a greenhouse is that I can plant seeds this fall, such as lettuce and tomato and have a winter garden inside of it. We have fairly mild winters. It will be a great experiment at least. The outside grounds took me all day to till up, but I am finished! Now I am looking forward to planting. As much as I love vegetables, I love flowers more. I have one space ready for flowers only. So instead of a flower bed, I am hoping for a flower garden. Hope you all had a good weekend.

I love it, Kathleen! You'll have those shelves filled up in no time!
I can't wait to see all the colors just bursting out from within your little greenhouse.
I know where you'll be spending most of your time now- don't forget to blog every once in a while! LOL
