Last year’s greenhouse didn’t make it through the winter, so we spent the weekend picking up pieces of the frame and fabric :(  The good news is I got to scout out a new location for Attempt #2 and we’ve decided on building a Lean-to style against the back garage.  I found this great book: How to Build Your Own Greenhouse — lots of drawings, tips, ideas.  Highly recommend for any of you thinking about taking on this project.

This is where I decided to stick the greenhouse:

For a couple of reasons:

  1. It’s level.  The garden is very NOT.
  2. It’s hidden from street view.  The way our lot sits, no one (except the million of you reading this :) will be able to drive by and see this gigantic grocery store.
  3. Anchoring it against the garage will hopefully keep it from blowing away!

SO…I’m totally open to any great suggestions on flooring, glazing, shelves, vents.  I’ll be researching all of that in the coming weeks and sharing what I find.  Here’s the Next Step in the Greenhouse Project.

Happy Spring!  Are you planting yet???
