I started this blog to get to know other gardeners and track my own garden's progrss. It is a wonderful way to honor the stewardship I have over my plot of ground I have been blessed with. Thanks for stopping by!

We Are Building a Greenhouse!

Linking Up  With   
 It is  mid- July!  Can you believe it?   It has been really cold here until the 4th when it turned hot.   We went from an average of   mid  50* temps to  mid  90* literally overnight.
 Just when I was ready to get out and play in the dirt I got kidney stones  - I am so sorry I haven't been more sympathetic to people with that plight .  (If you ever get them - dandelion and hydrangea help to dissolve them quickly.) I am very aware to make sure I drink enough water everyday!  I never want to do that again!!!
Now onto our news! WE HAVE A GREENHOUSE! 
It is from Tuff Greenhouses.  
We live in Idaho and the wind can blow really hard here - these greenhouses can withstand whatever wind comes our way!
  We assembled  it over the 4th weekend.  My husband, our son and son in law's make a formible crew!  Here are the pictures:

This was the first step  - choosing and making a level spot

 This is after the spot was cleared.
 The spot is ready
  Base is in

 The spines are going up
  Same pictures from a distance
Support  braces are up
 This is how it looks from the end
 Putting up the  vents and fans
 Putting on the skin - we had to get up at 5:00 a.m.   to  put it on without any wind.
 The next cover goes on
 From the end -
 The Back End is Done

Working on the Front End

 Everyone is tired - but it is done!
In the coming weeks I will be sharing setting up our greenhouse.
Thanks for letting me share.
Today I am thankful for plants that grow, the sun that shines and our wonderful family.

Wow, what a great project. I have a little green house and love it. Nice to have family working together to create something. Look forward to seeing how you set it up, Happy Gardening ~ Jacque

You will love it! Mine is only 16' x 16', and I use it only for starting plants in the spring, but boy they do better than they ever did under lights. I only keep them in there a month or so, but it's a fun time that I truly enjoy! Larry

Glad you are feeling better! WOW what a set up you have in this greenhouse...mine is small but there is no other place I'd rather be in the winter.

Karen said...

Wow, the possibilities are endless!
have fun! I'll make sure to stop back!
