So much depends upon a red wheelbarrow,
glazed with rain water...
Well, we did it. Rain did not deter us one bit. Pouring rain didn't slow us either. The greenhouse is a go. I wish I could have taken a photo of us carrying the greenhouse from the garage to the landing spot. Of course, I figured asking my husband to stop, while I set up the tripod, and put the timer on the camera was pushing my luck, so no photo attempts were made.
It fit on the base with minimal trouble. Yesterday there was enough of a break in the rain to get a load of black gold, aged buffalo compost from one of my co-workers. Instead of raised beds, we decided to just fill the whole inside with 8 inches of compost and just add some stepping stones inside. It took 10 wheelbarrow loads to fill the inside. Somebody asked me where my husband got the greenhouse and it was at the website: http://bettergreenhouses.com/snap-grow.htm
Batten down the hatches!
We determined big floppy hats are a must when working in the rain. We will fore go any photos of me, as I had about 10 layers of clothing on. It was raining pretty good when we started this morning, so we hurried to get the compost in the greenhouse. Glad we did because it really let loose about the 8th wheelbarrow load. We kept going and after that put the door on despite the downpour. Poor Ella sat there looking at us like we were insane.
I am so excited tomorrow I plant. Kelly is going to make a little table in the back to put potted plants, like tomatoes and peppers. I want to thank my wonderful husband for this Christmas present. Even though I couldn't use it immediately and it took some work to get put together it is the best Christmas present ever.
