We finally got our greenhouse all up and running once again. It took quite a beating over the winter being that the winds are pretty crazy up here year round. It's especially brutal during the winter. We tore off all the old ripped up plastic and then re-sided the whole thing. That wasn't the easiest thing to do with that previously mentioned wind huffing and puffing all around us hehe. So needless to say it was pretty much an all day event. It feels really nice to have it in working order again, especially because we had started some seedlings a couple of weeks ago inside and they were in need of some more sun and warmer temperatures. 
Now that we have running water our little watering system is working even better. Last year we really had quite DIY system. I'm so happy that all our plants should stay nice and watered while we are gone for most of July. I would be devastated to come back to dead little plants, I grow far too attached to each little guy hehe. 
I'm really excited about all the seeds we've planted this year. The super amazing Hannah got me a whole bunch of them for my birthday (the girl really knows the way to my heart). This year I am even going to try to grow some corn, eee! I am really kind of excited about this, so keep your fingers crossed for me! 
We actually put in a window in our greenhouse this year. One day the whole greenhouse will be made of glass, so we don't have to rebuild each year. It is really surprising what a huge difference having the window has made to our little greenhouse. It is just so much more fun working in there while getting to look at this gorgeous view. 

If you have been following me for a while you know this is only one of a ton of greenhouse posts that will be happening, so get ready.

  2. Oh my gosh! I am so jealous! Look at your amazing 2 tier planter box! I just got all my starts in the ground this week and I am really excited! What are you most excited about growing?

  3. I'm about to build my garden for the first time and I would love to have a green house like you! Maybe next year...
    have a nice day!

  4. Your photos are oh so lovely! I stumbled across your blog and couldn't leave... I am so enamored with your story. I'm so glad to have found your blog! You have a new fan (and follower!).

  5. I love your greenhouse! We like to experiment with growing things, but we stink at it. (I did NOT inherit my mom's green thumb.) But my father-in-law has an amazing garden and is more than happy to share his harvest so it's all good, hah!

  6. Fingers crossed for the corn! I've been dreaming up plans for a little greenhouse in our back yard. Not sure if I'll build one this year, but I have the itch to build something!

  7. What an exciting little project! Good luck with the corn!

  8. I want a greenhouse too. This looks so cool. Unfortunately SF is not a place to have a green house.


Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello! I love reading each and every comment!
