Greenhouse Beginnings



before. all this sheet metal had to come off.


after the overhang is gone. look at all that glorious afternoon sunshine!

We tried to put a greenhouse up this weekend. As you can see by the pictures, that didn't exactly happen. 

Easter weekends are busy, and while Nick and I had very good plans to take down the overhang on the back of the house and put up the 10ft by 12ft greenhouse that his parents bought for him (us), we didn't get quite as far as we were hoping. 

The progress we've made is great, though. It was a little chilly on Saturday - so taking down the overhang meant cold fingers. We definitely need to get the greenhouse up soon though, we've got some rather eager cucumber plants that are ready for some fresh air and greenhouse loving. One of them even flowered on Good Friday! 

Nick still has the day off, so he's building the framing. Hopefully by next week, our plants will have a new home in sunshine and warmth. Most of them have outgrown their grow-lamp.

  1. Ooh how exciting!! That space looks so open without the overhang and I am sure a greenhouse filled with lush plants will look even better! Good luck with your project!! :)
