If you love to garden, you understand how much we love our greenhouses. Yes, we actually have two.
Our first greenhouse quickly filled with Dianne’s pots and plants. Pete built this one off the side of the kitchen, and you access it through the garage. As you can see from the view from the inside, it quickly filled up with Dianne’s potted plants. She’s a fanatic about sedums.
In the winter, we use a small heater in the greenhouse when it threatens to freeze.
Our second greenhouse was built as an addition to the workshop. The new greenhouse is larger, but is quickly filling up with plants and odds and ends – who can ever have too many?
Both greenhouses were built by Pete. As you can see from the photo, some extra heating is needed to keep the plants toasty on winter nights.
The greenhouses really get used a lot when we get ready for our annual plant sales, which we always hold on Mothe’rs Day weekend. In addition to divisions from Dianne’s garden, we also sell Pete’s concrete garden benches and concrete leaves.
We found good plans for our greenhouses in this book.
