Not a week goes by without a question about the little greenhouse in my garden.
I thought I would answer a few of the most often asked!
Yes, we built this greenhouse out of nearly all recycled material!
The greenhouse size is 10 x 10.
No, my husband does not have plans for the greenhouse–he does these projects in his head, not even a scribble on paper!
The color is a Dutch Boy Paint color called Pumpkin Stem.
I heat the greenhouse with electric heaters.
Yes, it really works as a greenhouse; growing seedlings each spring!
Today I had the pleasure of speaking at our local library.
I love herbs and hopefully inspired some gardeners to start a culinary herb garden.
Little starter pots of herbs can be kept from drying out under a little overturned canning jar.
A couple years ago, I discovered I loved leeks.
Yesterday, I bumped my tray of leek seedlings.
I will be starting over.
I will not be denied my potato leek soup!
Kind hearts are the garden,
kind thoughts are the roots,
kind words are the blossoms,
kind deeds are the fruit.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I started my Zinnia seeds today!
I didn’t plant as many last year, and I missed them.
That will not be the case this year.
This very cold Spring is a challenge….
keeping the greenhouse warm and nurturing for my little tender seedlings.
