Featured Interest: Greenhouse

Image: That's hard work, I always wanted to build something using stone, never again. The block work was a killer and that's with Lynn helping me lift them.

Image: Since most everything that I keep in the greenhouse is on the deck or yard, here's a picture of what it looks like today.

Never enough room, especially during the winter, for all the tender tropical's we have, so having tinkered in the gardening business in the past I suggested we build a greenhouse.

In 1998 Lynn and I started building the structure, I redesigned a set of plans we liked. Nothing big or fancy but large enough to hold our deck plants during the winter.

I had certain requirements like water, lights, overhead fan, a swamp cooler and windows that opened for those wonderful fall days.

For me, the smell of a moist greenhouse is a relaxing sensation. I love to putter, pot, and piddle around the greenhouse during the spring, and our new addition satisfies that need.

I'm particularly fond of ferns and bromeliads and I have a hard time resisting the urge to rescue one or two from Home Depot when I'm there for nuts and bolts. It's a good thing Lynn keeps me in check or we'd be up to our eyeballs in more plants.
