Despite some nasty weather lately, Will got the new greenhouse totally enclosed. I’ll admit there are a few “temporary” things about it as the only plywood we had was some cheap stuff off the boxes David had gotten at work. But at the cost of treated plywood soaring to over $50 a sheet, Will figures he’ll hold off awhile and see if the price comes down or we can get some other material from the dump. I’m so happy to see it finished! He’s going to put down landscaping fabric under the bench areas and use some heavy grade rubber conveyor belting a friend got for us — discarded at the iron mines — for the walkways. Then it’s building benches for the plants and installing the propane wall heater we used, years ago, to heat our fish house living room when we first moved here in 2004, in February. I can’t wait!
I’ve been transplanting tomato plants like mad. Yesterday, I did six flats and only got to the “Cs”. I planted tomatoes alphabetically, so I had some order to the chaos. Whew, what a job! But it has to be done and soon as some of those plants are more than 6 inches tall already. Luckily, they aren’t getting too leggy. I’m thinking that when Will gets the new greenhouse up and running, I’ll have tons of plants ready to go out there.
