Hoopin' it up

As trite and cliché as it may sound, clouds do have silver their silver linings.

J got three days off work for his grandmother's death, so he was able to come home after the funeral. The little break was a welcome one because otherwise he would have been gone from us for a full month. He still won't be back until April 5th, but the break made the long stretch a little more bearable. I really pray he gets his transfer this summer.

A package arrived the day before he got back:

And thanks to frigg, you get to see a step-by-almost-step of the set-up of what is inside.







Kids and dog approve. Let the growing begin.

Sorry for the different photo sizes.  No idea what is up with it and not wasting my time figuring it out.

Keep your eye on that "pond." Fixing that will be one of the big projects this spring/summer.

Hoop-ti-doop!

Glad to be of service! It's not as long as I'd imagined, but much, much wider. HUGE greenhouse! Looking good, and what a lovely family. :)

It's 4m X 6m. :). And I read that no matter how big you get one, you always wish you had gotten bigger. :P

What will you be growing in this greenhouse?

Here, snow is still on the ground, even if my father is eager to talk about the plans for the growing season (he has a small greenhouse and usually raises couple of tomatoes and couple of cucumbers in there.)

We'll grow peppers, eggplants (aubergines), tomatoes, cucumbers, and maybe some melons...

I am a total novice gardener!


We don't have snow at the moment, but we should get a bit next week. We're supposed to have around -6°C on Easter, but maybe the forecast is a bit pessimist; it was for the last cold snap.
