I haven't posted in forever which would be fine, if I'd spent the time doing things worth posting about now. That way I could regale you with grand tales of my craftiness. That, however, is not the case. I have done nothing blog worthy save for the last two, maybe three, days. Of course I'm not going to share them all at once so today you get my garden and greenhouse efforts.
This year we're hoping to build a couple of 8x8 garden boxes in the back (south facing) yard. Last year I tried to grow some tomatoes and cucumbers on the northwest side of the house and it just didn't work, not enough sun and too many slugs, snails and grasshoppers. In the back yard they'll have full sun and the chickens will be my pest control (and fertilizer) for an organic harvest. So in the spirit of The Garden of Dreams "If you grow it you can build it" I am starting my seeds for my garden.
I ordered this from CSN for less than $40 and shipping was free. I put it together this evening and it was so easy peasy to assemble. I do wish that the grid of the shelving was finer, my bottle greenhouses what to tip over.
I would certainly put it in a protected space though, it's not sturdy in any way. I like it though, I went to unzip it to put things on the shelves and there was a definite temperature change just within a few minutes.
My sweetie bought me this because I am a sucker for all things tea (and coffee) related. He knows me so well. :) So while we were playing in the dirt I re-potted a couple of my house plants.
Well that' it for this post, next I'll have some sewing to talk about.
