The other day, I told you that I had built another swc from 1 gallon buckets, and wanted to see if the size container was adequate for the plant. Common sense tells me that it will never work, but I like tinkering with stuff. Who knows? It may work just fine.....Anyway, the plants are doing very well, and appreciate the abundance of sunshine we've been experiencing lately. The little greenhouse will be used to get them through the winter, if needed. These photos were taken before I got sick....
Photo below - with just a few more finishing touches to the roof and eaves, the vinyl siding will be next. I'll probably hold off until the massive pile of leaves is completely moved from the front yard. Besides, I need to get that big batch of compost started quick!
Photo below - the buckets for the workshop continue to come in, and the WalMart in another town is really coming though for me. Much better than my hometown store....
I'm confident that the number of buckets accumulated by next spring will be enough for a workshop at 3 different counties. That's great news, and I know that everyone will enjoy it.
In other news, I will probably construct an actual walk-in greenhouse. It won't replace the small 4x4 I'm working on, but will be for my wife. I had expressed an interest for propagating perrenials to sell to the public, and she stated that if I built a greenhouse - she'd help. This was a no-brainer! It will be constructed sometime next year. She has decided to become a SAHM, and will hopefully enjoy spending time helping me propagate all kinds of plants - especially japanese maple trees and heirloom tomatoes. That's great news!
Take care, and happy gardening!
