Last year we built a greenhouse that is attached to the house. My intentions were to blog about the greenhouse as it evolved, but you will simply have watch for future posts.
We broke ground in mid-May and although John did much of the work we had several others participating in the construction and completion. Since we also added a master bedroom next to the greenhouse, progress was slower than expected. Nonetheless, the greenhouse was ready for the drop in temperature in late October.
I will fill you in on many of the construction details with pictures of the progress in another post. John is proud of his surplus windows that were sandblasted and then primed and painted red by my sister Jenny. Stay tuned for more about how this all came to be such a work of art, thanks to John.
We celebrated a Christmas Eve dinner in the greenhouse this year. John seems to think this is a 'special event center', but soon it will be filled with seed starts and the party room will be no more.
Below you can see a few things that are currently growing in the greenhouse.
