You have a nice set up.

I tilled my garden last weekend. Probably plant next weekend if the weather looks OK.

It's 10' x 10', CCA 4" x 6" base, two 4x4 posts at the front (door), one 4x4 at the back, 2x8 ridge board, 20' x 1" pvc pipe bows. Two layers of "greenhouse" plastic, inflated by a small (double) "squirrel cage" fan drawing air from outside (white pipe over door). It's worked well for me for several years, have to replace one layer of plastic every couple of years. Door is one the north end. Exhaust fan on south, two odd-shaped panels over the fan louvers (2nd pic) remove in warm weather. Rain water is piped from blue barrels behind tool shed about 20' to GH, small transfer pump in greenhouse. ~~ grnspot

Weather finally straightened up enough to be able to set out my tomatoes & bell peppers today. Also got them caged & mulched! :smile1:

Had our first mess of "new tators" for dinner today (noon) with grilled pork chops & peas, topped off with fresh strawberries for desert! :smilewink:
