During a recent visit with our grandchildren, Bruce enlisted their help with the foundation for our new solar greenhouse.
Bruce is happy to make use of Brit’s levelling skills.
Oh, oh – stuck in the mud.
Oh, no – fell in the mud.
Time to get Emma’s help with some drilling.
Who’s the king of the mud hill?
Emma’s pretty excited about helping with the concrete.
I know Bruce will be missing his talkative and lively helpers this week but he continues to make progress on his own.

What a fun time they had helping. Such cut little ones.
They are a couple of cuties, that’s for sure. Thanks for stopping by the blog and taking the time to comment, Patty.
Reblogged this on through the luminary lens and commented:
The title of this Fran’s post says it all. I’d only add that we tore down the old greenhouse a few years back. It gave us lots of veggies over 30 years, but had seen it’s better days…
Hope your followers enjoy it!
Here’s 3 photos of the old greenhouse… thought I’d add with some teamwork 🙂 … Bruce
We had many good years of use from that old one but I feel we are going to maximize our growing ability with the new one. Form is going to meet function in beautiful symmetry.
wonderful to see
growing possibilities 🙂
Yes, indeed – growing gardens and grandkids share many of the same imperatives.
Oh how lucky to have a Bruce around! An ambitious project but it’s completely in his wheelhouse…er greenhouse! 😉
So true, Jackie. He is in his element when it comes to designing and building a solar greenhouse. And mini-helpers only makes the project all the sweeter.
Real work is the best play. The kids must have had a great time.
I love the plan. That’s an ambitious greenhouse.
It was one of those things that morphed and grew the more we talked about it and walked around the site. I love plans that do that.
