New greenhouse up

A few months ago I was on and someone said they'd bought a new greenhouse from Harbor Freight....I got on their website and found one I could live with. Well today I finally got the first bed in place and planted 2 kinds of lettuce, bok choi, and endive and transplanted some celery from the garden that hadn't died quite yet. And here's a few photo of my endevors.

A lot of work....but maybe I'll get a few veggies out of it...maybe not...as I live in central Penna. and our weather is iffy at best.

I still have the other side to do but this is a great first attempt. Added it to the back of our garage with the intentions of making the window into a door should we need to heat this. Plus the garage gives it a good wind break for the winter.

BTW....I'm a newbie on this forum.

hallchinalady,

Welcome to the forum. :D It would be nice, IMO, if "Roger Almighty" would add a Greenhouse Forum. :wink:

Very nice setup, a lot like mine. :D You will have earlier greens and later too. Should be able to start, hundreds of vegetable starts, for the garden also.

This is my sun room on the front of our house...it had started life as a greenhouse then we inclosed the roof and add a few sky lights....now it houses my orchids and a few plants over the winter.

Very nice everybody! Now to save up for one for myself! After just opening a new business though, I can't see that happening for awhile, but thank goodness dreams are Free! :D
