Family Project: Greenhouse

Over a month ago, we finally ordered a greenhouse. The company was a little difficult to work with, but at last, it was delivered a few days ago. We all have our own responsibilities. Lyle is the construction man. I’m the grower. And C, obviously, is supervisor.

The greenhouse construction began yesterday. After a lot of thought, we decided to order a kit. We have lots of old windows that would be perfect for a greenhouse, but at the end of the day, a self-made greenhouse was going to cost us much more than simply ordering a kit. Lyle was able to put the kit together in one day on the terrace he had already built for it (using some huge stones we have around the farm). Check it out!

Lyle used old pallets he had at the farm to make me three long tables. So talented.

C was very busy making sure daddy was doing everything right.

He even taste-tested the air to make sure it was perfect.

I got to get in there and get my seeds started this evening. THRILLED! I have saved the plastic containers that plants have come in for the last few years so I have a stash built up. I also used egg cartons that I vented at the bottom. For plant markers, I used leftover plastic knives – you ALWAYS have the dang knives left behind! šŸ™‚

I finally started running out of daylight and thought that this Sunday couldn’t possibly get any better… but then I turned around to this. Best. Day. Ever.
