Today has been an absolutely gorgeous day for doing some outdoor Spring work. The day dawned bright and sunny with a somewhat mild temperature, which only gained warmth as the day progressed.
Don started us off by washing a few of the windows inside and out.....
I set up the pop up greenhouses.....yep, I said "houses". We bought another to add to last years because I have planted more varieties of seeds this year and need more room when I set them out to harden off in the greenhouse.
Here is last years greenhouse that I set up this morning. I set it up with the doors facing the opposite direction than I had last year. I wasn't able to easily reach one of the doors last year to unzip it, so decided to have it this direction this year.......plus I wanted to add the 2nd greenhouse to it as seamlessly as possible. Both greenhouses are 5'x5'. With both set up, I now have a 5'x10' greenhouse.
Here is what the two look like attached together.
I also laid the plastic sheeting, which is weighed down on opposite ends with 2'x4'x8' lumber (that I had configured for the hoop raised bed), over the top of the 2 greenhouses. It will protect the area where the two come together, plus perhaps give the greenhouses a layer of extra warmth due to the dead air space between them.
Now to let the filled containers soak up solar heat until I am ready to move seedlings out into the greenhouses.
