what a week

Written by

Oh my, it sure has been busy around here !

 

 Greenhouse building is in full swing. It’s finally starting to look like a “real” operation !

 

 

The kids have been in on the action too. While all of these harebrained projects Chris and I keep adding in can get pretty tedious, they’ve both kept really great attitudes, so far : )

 

Baby spring flowers are up and growing in their new homes. Here a bed of ‘Super Green’ Ranunculus stretch to meet the sun.

 

As usual the kitties are being VERY helpful ; )

    Hello, I just found your blog looking for hoop house designs for do-it yourselfers! Just thought I'd say something as I stopped in to look at your pretty blog! Your pictures are inspiring!

    I've purchased mine from Oregon Valley Greenhouses and Steuber's in Snohomish WA. Both companies do a very nice job.

    Can you say where you buy the hoops from? I am looking to add a 20X60, you have inspired me. With our wonderful NW weather that brings us lush forests it's not so good for growing some flowers.

    Deborah, we order the metal hoops and purlins but build the rest from scratch.

    Wonderful Erin!!! I'm inspired to get our first Hoop House ordered and set up! Do you order yours or build from scratch?
