no beautiful, blue sky pic for my sweet Helga in this post - it has been foggy and grey all week! that's when it hasn't been raining! it is driving us crazy as we can't work on the greenhouse -arghghghghgh! i know this pic of the greenhouse doesn't look any different than the last pics from previous posts - but here it is with a coat of exterior, water-proofing paint on it. this coat of paint took forever to dry because it is so wet outside.
jambaloney got the frames built for the 2 biggest sections of windows for our roof. he built these 2 weeks ago...and only a few days ago was it dry enough to finally prime them and then get a coat of exterior paint on them. when i say "dry enough" i use the term loosely. look at how grey and wet it is in these pics - arghghghgh!
because we have no work area for anything, we have to use the yard for building and work. once the greenhouse is built, jambaloney can start working on a workshed.
besides painting the whole frame with primer and exterior water-proof paint, we had to prime and exterior paint 40 railings....an easy job when you have the sun to help.
we had some good eats though. here are my loaded nachos with organic chips, homemade salsa with chopped tomatoes, green onions, a ton of garlic, a large splash of olive oil and a dollop of apple cider vinegar (with the mother). also homemade guacamole made with the juice of a lime, an avacado, sour cream and another ton of garlic (we eat a lot of garlic!!!) and some chopped peppers to top them off.
jambaloney's had the same ingredients plus some hot banana peppers and some hamburger.
yum. below is some homemade kimchi soup. i take homemade broth and boil up some rice noodles, chop up some homemade kimchi and add it, then add chopped peppers and green onions. it is so spicey it near blows your head off. but delicious and so good for you!
and some yummy chicken and cauliflower curry with rice, pickled artichokes, olives and fresh pineapple chunks. that's some good eats right there.
my tomatoe seedlings have grown to almost a foot tall and i had to transplant them from their starter cups into pots and put a bunch of them on the porch. soon i will have to do it with all of them as they are outgrowing my little kitchen greenhouse thingie. same thing with the peppers! come on weather - co-operate please!!!!
at least tomorrow it is not forecasted to be too wet so jambaloney can work on the roof of the greenhouse. and hopefully it will be dry enough for me to paint about 40 1 X 2's. and all of the OSB for the walls. ack. we need some sun and dry days!!!!
