spring is soooo in the air! (please don't anyone notice that our patio furniture on the berm is still over-turned! just haven't gotten to it yet!
check out my beautiful greenhouse!
isn't she a beauty! and some stick things that we are painting to put around all of our garden beds. (please don't anyone notice my finger in the left hand corner of the pic - not every pic is perfect! and i honestly don't know why every pic i take of the greenhouse makes it look slanty?!?!?!?)
come on in to the greenhouse! it needs a good cleaning after this crazy winter, but a good cleaning is already in the plans. i just wanted to take you all on a tour!
it was a balmy 24 degrees in there today - can you believe it?
this is the right side of the greenhouse looking in from the door. lots of shelves for smaller pots, when they are ready, and large racks on the floor for bigger plants! (of course the racks were salvaged from the garbage by jam!)
this is a big giant shelf thing that i can't get a proper picture of that is opposite the racks at the back of the greenhouse - it's huge and will hold many pots!
this close to the centre of the greenhouse. we will add my little sink and it will be the washing up, watering area.
this is the nifty dirt-sifting contraption that jambaloney built using and old window frame with larger screen for the first sift of the dirt, and it has another screen underneath for the second round of sifting. and of course a big bin to catch all of the sifted dirt. we plan on mixing 3yrd old compost (our own - i'm sooo proud!), 5 yr old horse manure from our friend's horse farm, some seaweed, some store bought dirt and some peat moss. that is the dirt we will start all of our seedlings in - woohoo!
this is dead centre of the greenhouse with my potting table - i love it!
this is to the right of the potting table (again, ignore my finger!) it has a large table/stand and more shelves.
and this is looking to the right from the door. we have 2 of those plastic greenhouse thingies - the one wrapped in plastic will go in the house to start our tomatoes. the other one in the corner will stay in the greenhouse and i will be able to start some seeds out there in a week or so - woohoo!
can you tell how excited i am? i bet you can. it has been 2 really gorgeous days in a row! here's out front yesterday - beautiful eh?
on a gorgeous day like that you just HAVE to have a BBQ! we had steak and veggie shish-kebabs.
i hope that all of you are feeling spring where you are and are excited to get your gardens started. Framboise Manor Garden 2014 is really looking like it's going to be an awesome garden!
