Building the Greenhouse

Start of the greenhouse 21

Updated 1-8-23

We start the greenhouse for the new business Fool For Flowers on Thanksgiving Day. It’s amazing how much Phil can get done in so little time…lol, especially handicapped by me trying to help him.

This greenhouse is being built with all recycled-up-cycled materials he has collected since I started talking about wanting to have a greenhouse.

We planned on creating a cold frame that would run along the front of the greenhouse, but we had 3 of our big windows shattered, so we have to hold off on the cold frames.

My husband amazes me, and this is my chance to brag on him, he got all of that done in about 4 hours even with me all in his way.

I also messed around trying to clean up the weeds and make paths so I can get to all of my areas.

I will have updates with pictures as we get things finished.
