A New Greenhouse: Chapter Three


There was still one panel left to be installed but the greenhouse needed plants!  Lulu came to check it out inside.


The finished house!  Obviously some landscaping needs to be done around the outside.


More has been planted:  flowers, tomatoes, peppers, onions, beans and carrots.  Herbs include:  basil, oregano, thyme, and cilantro.  Can't wait to harvest everything and eat some fresh, homegrown veggies!


This is where the greenhouse is sitting in relationship to the house.  It doesn't actually have a chimney on it.  Hopefully this house will shelter our garden from hail, wind and snow so we can eat lots of fresh goodness in a couple of months!


See more skies at SkyWatchFriday!

With those kind of skies you should be eating real good soon. It looks great.

That's incredible. Good for you. I'm not showing your post to my wife because I know what our next project would be.

I can't wait to hear about the harvest!

A beautiful spot for a greenhouse. And the skies are looking cheery too.

Great job! You should have plenty of veggies in a month or two.

I often wish I could have a green house. Not only does it protect the garden from weather but give the gardener more control over garden pests as well.
It is very satisfying to go out to the garden and bring in something to eat. I just brought in some blueberries and I check the other veggies daily to see what may be near harvest.

Skywatch with a greenhouse is a perfect combination!

Wow! This is really impressive! I'd love to build something similar, but probably not until we buy our 'forever' house somewhere out in the bush.

We've made smaller poly-tunnel huts and little domes that are covered with a frost-guard fabric. We have a really productive garden this Winter, it's wonderful!

Loran!
That is the most beautiful greenhouse I have ever seen...really...and I wish I was there to help you plant it. The weather here is terrible and I miss my old green house so much. How did you come up with the plans?? The bricks are a great idea...never seen that design before. Out here in the wilderness, I have a concrete slab with a wooden frame built...now almost falling down after ten years, and I hoped to finish it somehow...You are AMAZING ...INSPIRATION...thank you!
LOVE and LIGHT!
