Category: my greenhouse | Posted: Tue Aug 12, 2008 3:17 pm

Someone had a greenhouse frame for sale. They only used part of it but then later took it down. Its 18 ft wide by 48 ft long.(about like one of the commercial greenhouses). I know this sounds huge. But this is going to fit perfect into our vegie garden space. Hubby talked the lady into throwing in a spinning compost bin (about like Toni's) with the price of the frame. So I also have a bin now too-just needs a little work. How exciting.
The plan is to put the frame up in the garden so that next year when I start my seeds, we can put them right into the ground around the first of april. Many Amish people grow vegie's in the ground inside a lg greenhouse and have the best luck.
We still have to buy the heavy plastic covering and will have to get some help assembling. But when its finished, I'll take picts. We do want to get this assembled and up hopefully by the end of fall so it'll be ready to go by next year. Wow, when things just come at a good price sometimes you just have to take the plunge. What plans I can start making for next year. Its like having a new slat. The ideas could be endless. I'll use your ideas too if anyone wants me to experiment. I LOVE GARDENING. :)

That is so awesome Petunia. I was just looking at greenhouses yesterday and they are so expensive. I was hoping to get one but at those prices I may have to wait, unless I can find a deal like you did. YEAH for you! I can't wait to see pics. Congrats!

Congratulations, Petunia! Best of luck with the assembling of it. I hope it's going to bring you lots of delicacies and lots of fun.

Wow, that is huge and a great deal. Good lordy, I just figured out you have more square footage in that than my whole house does.

Don't make us wait until it is completely ready to use to see pictures of it. Take pictures in progress, that is so much more fun to see.

Fantastic Petunia. I know how I felt when I got my greenhouse erected and it's nowhere near the size of yours. You're going to have soooo much fun planting seeds in all that lovely space.
