 Well last Monday I ordered myself a new green house 6'x6' . It came to me from Mn. and was at my door at 9:08am Saturday Morning !! Got it off Amazon of all places .

 

 Well finished running errends and started around noon assembling this thing. It was pretty easy and straight forward and by 6pm I had me a green house.

 I'll snap a few photos later when I get home , all I need now is to assemble a few benches and get planting. I'm about 1-2 weeks behind ...but last year I think I was a little early and the tomatoes and peppers just sat shocked for about 3 weeks... Stay tuned for some pics.

And I'm tuned, too (what ever this will mean). I think, I'm the big tuna   

 

 

Can be interesting for our little herb garden - winter is coming soon!

Looking forward to seeing this. We'd like to have one but probably not until I'm retired and have the time to look after things properly.

 I hope that was all you lost ?  where I live the wind blows constant , but not like that !!

 

 Going to start seed beds tonight . The benches are covered with wire mesh so the water can drain ... I'm sure the grass will get out of control in there , but it is only a temperary location , I need to bring in fill and then sawdust for it's final resting spot further away from the house . It will also have running water and electricity out to it when it is permantly located .
