Greenhouse progress again


The greenhouse is still inching its way along. Of course, with the dramatic progress taking place on the house, it, understandably, takes somewhat of a backseat. But, it is still slowly getting done. The roof is now up and the floor inside (brick pavers over sand over insulation foam) is next.

In other garden news, my squash and pumpkin vines are succumbing to powdery mildew. It is so sad. We did get lots from the plants already, but I was hoping to have extras for animal treats over the winter. Oh well...maybe next year. I have canned my 120th quart of tomatoes, though, with some donations from friends' gardens as well. We'll be eating good this winter!

Oh, I so want a greenhouse. It's one of the many items on the ever growing list. Yours looks great!!

That's a lot of tomatoes! Your greenhouse looks good, especially surrounded by your garden.

Did you see that I compared my tiny harvest to yours? :) My greenhouse is tiny too but then it fits into my tiny garden :lol:

So glad you will be eating so well this winter!

Missus Wookie, Yes I did! It's funny because I covet other people's gardens too!...mainly those without weeds!! Hey, I realize I'm really lucky to be able to plow up an entire huge front yard to garden. No homeowner's associations out here! And not much of a limit on size, either, considering the land we have. And I'd rather have a small garden than miss out on this adventure! Your harvest looked terrific, by the way.
