Got you to look, didn't I! Here's my DH heading out to the greenhouse with the sprayer full of soapy bleach water to disinfect the place in preparation for taking the plants out there. We do this every spring to destroy any potential aphids & diseases that can attack young plants. Next we'll staple up more plastic inside for a vapor barrier, then re-install the oil heater.

I don't keep soil in the greenhouse, potting everything instead. This also helps to keep the plants from contracting any bad microbes or aphids.

Weezingreen,
I'm laughing at your thread title and crying because your dear husband looks so much like my late, much beloved father.Same beard, glasses, teddy bear figure and fashion sense- he always wore jeans and sweatshirts or T shirts with fishing logos on them. He was a family doctor for 50 years and saw patients up 'til the day before he went in the hospital at age 77. His patients adored him. He was an avid fisherman and the absolute high point of his life was a fishing trip to Alaska for salmon.We always teased him that he was more proud of that trophy fish than he was of us - his 14 children, but we knew that wasn't really true!!We lost him in 1996 and I miss him every day. It's wonderful to know he has a twin up there in Alaska- so tell your DH if he's a fisherman to catch one for Doc!! Melissa

mwhit: Thanks for the comparison of me and your dad. And yes I am a fisherman.

Was a commercial fisherman for many years, but now its a fly rod and waders that get my blood pumping.

As soon as the creeks start flowing up in the interior of Alaska Im going up to our youngest sons cabin for a week of combat trout fishing.

And the first one I catch and the first shot of brandy, will be for"Ol'Doc"...Dennis

PS..Your dad seems like he had the same taste in clothes.
Tee-shirts, sweatshirts and blue jeans...D...

Hey, Poppysue, we sort of skipped over you. Yes, DH built the greenhouse for me about four years ago. It's covered with that fiberglass sheeting, which isn't as good as lexan, but it does the job for starting my plants in the spring. The barnstyle shape gives me plenty of light, especially that slanted spring light. I can put plants on the bench, under the bench, and on the top racks that hang from the upper walls. I can also hang about 20 hanging pots. By late spring it's a jungle in there!

Ok, as long as we're bumping up some of these springtime funnies, I thought I'd resurrect the Old Tomcat.

Thanks for the bump! It's good to see my Ol' Tomcat again, back in the good old days. For those of you who don't know, he passed away February 22nd. This picture always made him smile... me, too.

Thanks, Digger. Dennis was a very kind man, and he did have a kind face. He was always running out of gas somewhere, and he never failed to get a ride to the gas station... he had that kind of face. He had a beard all the time we were married, and resting my head on his shoulder, it was soft and spongy. I felt like a bird in a nest. Thanks for bumping him up.

Yep, never knew him in person except via Internet. No doubt about it he sure put a lot of life in Weezy's world!

(Course now, he was a bit befuddled when it came to figgering out when to set tomatoes out!)

Thinking of you often, Weezin!

Happiest of Happy Day to ya!

Hi, Shoe! Haven't been checking DG lately, as I'm up to my ears in seedlings and I don't have the Ol' Tomcat to help out, so I'm flying solo. Now you know Dennis followed your instructions to the letter when it came to settin' out 'maters!
