The Greenhouse

The previous tenant and friend who lived in our house built this wonderful greenhouse. I love to grow vegetables for our table and have found it very useful in starting seeds and in also keeping houseplants and flowers growing throughout the winter. It is also very cozy on a cold day. I love it! I only had one little problem with it and that was it's location. It was smack dab in the middle of our back yard. Which is probably the best placement in regards to the sun, but it did make it hard to play catch or croquet. So I decided it needed to be moved. My industrious hubby donned his Egyptian garb and got to it, with the help of one slave and round fence posts as rollers. I got busy looking beautiful and peeling grapes.

Here they are levering it up and placing the fence post roller underneath. Piece of cake.
Keeping it balanced on one or two rollers made it easy to move. They just had to keep pausing to move the back roller to the front.

Turning the corners was a little tricky.
But with a little Egyptian ingenuity they did it. It looks very nice nestled along the back fence. All that needed to be done was to place the plant stands with their little baby flower and vegetable starts back into their warm and cozy house.
OOPS! "Things turn out best for people whom make the best of the way things turn out" -John Wooden
So I laughed and replanted.


  1. Oh no! So sad. Good thing they were the basement seeds. (Weren't they?) I like the new location. Now for some lawn bowling!

  2. Looks like you got yourself some thinkin' men! WALK LIKE AN EGYPTIAN!!

    Fun post! Max is going to get so jealous you have a greenhouse!

  3. BTW--LOVE the John Wooden quote! I need to remember that one!


We love to hear what you have to say. Keep your comments coming! Thanks.
