A few weeks ago I challenged my husband to build us a green house out of the materials we had on hand. Basically low cost veggie growing was the desired outcome. My husband, awesome why-be-normal man that he is went to town on his planning and executing. He loves timber frame so he went that direction, mixed in a bunch of old windows we've been collecting for a few years and plans to use pallets for the lower walls. Total out of pocket so far? 40 dollars. Total hours spent about 30. We will be raising it tomorrow and hopefully I'll have tomatoes in by mid week.
I sure hope I have tomatoes in by mid week, they are getting bigger, blooming a whole lot and I even have green ones. The fun part of NOT having them in the greenhouse yet is when I carry them over to the bee hives and park them in front for some heavy pollinating! The bees go nuts and I know the plants will not be suffering from under pollination this year. In fact NOTHING will be suffering from under pollination this year.
School is now out for the boys so my thrifting time was very limited this week getting all the last week of school stuff done. I went twice but my head was not in the game. I will be garage sale-ing this weekend if I can get out alone for a while. My one find this week was this old jar,
it needs a new rubber seal but otherwise it's in perfect shape. Do you know where to get the rubber rings for old canning jars? I need a few.
and here is one my husband made so you can see the babies. Our total was 9!! No one guessed 9 so I'm eating the chocolate all by myself.
Peace and Love--
