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.
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
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!
Weez , I didn't know , but thought he had the kindest face in that pic . and of course I had to bump up your sense of humor . I lost my little brother (61 yrs old ) in Feb . and I took Mamas place with him after we lost her.
From your past posts , he was special , God bless , digger
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.
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!
