It's Planting Time Again

We are getting spring fever around here! Joel built his long-dreamed of mini greenhouse and the planting has officially begun! It may look a little redneck (note the well placed satellite dish...it's gotta go somewhere) but it's a heck of a lot better than last year's setup in my dining room! The exciting thing is that most of the materials were reused, from the windows that were taken out during the remodel to the boards from the torn down hay barn (check out the drama of that moment here). He used egg cartons to cover the vent spaces and as seed planters. The only things he had to buy were the corrugated plastic sheets and the cement corner pieces to hold the frame in place.

In another stroke of genius I suggested the hanging shelves as a space saver.

It was a dad n' son operation this year.

I was just thinking the other day that we haven't even seen your place - what would you think of me invading with my clan some day soon?
