New greenhouse

10 comments


Last weekend Paul was busy putting up my new 14ft greenhouse. The framework is all up and he hopes to fit all the glass this weekend, weather permitting. I cant wait, Ive never had a greenhouse and look forward to growing tomatoes and cucumbers.

I always grew Alicante toms outside, I read that they are one of the best for outside growing but the two past wet summers didnt help so the crop was poor. I also attempted the old fashioned Ridge cucumbers which did produce some nice juicy fruits but not as much as they should have.

So now its a whole new learning chapter which I am looking forward to, at the same time, Im a tad nervous, who would believe one can have stage fright in a greenhouse :-)) those Toms and Cues better dance the dance!

Anyway, I dont want to be over dramatic :-) I will take some photos once its up and then it will be ongoing greenhouse antics blogs posted here.

Good size greenhouse, i had 1 come the other week, still waiting for my friend to come back of holiday to put it up, he's not back for 2 more weeks, then its only a very small one, at 6ft-4ft, but i'm on my own so plenty big enough for me. Good luck with planting.

That is a big greenhouse - mine is 6' x 8' I think - we got it 4 years ago. It really wasn't big enough for my needs!

Thanks everyone :-) Most of the glass is in now, just one more side to finish, such fiddly job, Paul is a workaholic once he gets started on stuff, he was out from 7am Sunday morning until 7pm! I was playing tea and soup lady during the day and rum and coke waitress after
5pm :-))
