The greenhouse is all but done. Now...the planting.

The greenhouse is all finished except for a small aluminum strip to seal the gap between the two greenhouses. Right now it is sealed with hoophouse tape. Today I even finished cleaning the white paint off the last two panes. I still LOVE to look at the length of it. I guess I will have to extend the blueberry walk a little bit. Maybe another two plants. My personal favorite is Dixi!!

The orange tape is on that bar to catch our eye so we don't bump our heads. I'll tidy that up, but it will work for now. Allan made that little curb over the sharp edges so we don't trip.
I am going to put a chair in here so that I can enjoy it whenever I want. Even when it rains and I can't be in the garden outside, I can be in the garden inside. Doesn't it look nicer without the paint. I used nail polish remover to soften it. I am glad there was a breeze in there, or I would have killed millions of brain cells.

Oh my gosh, I have greenhouse envy! Such a wonderfully big space and so much room for growing things. Will look forward to reading how you use it.

Hi Caro. I am going to do a complete cleanup of the greenhouse and then seed lettuce and kale for the winter. I'll keep you posted!!

This looks beyond fantastic. It looks fresh, lush, inviting.

How wonderful, Erin. I love it. Can't wait to see it with plants. And the chair of course. P. x
