Grandkids and Greenhouses

Proposed Solar Greenhouse and Shed - by b.witzel

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.

Time to get Emma’s help with some drilling.

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.

    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…

  3. 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.

    Oh how lucky to have a Bruce around! An ambitious project but it’s completely in his wheelhouse…er greenhouse! 😉

    Real work is the best play. The kids must have had a great time.

    I love the plan. That’s an ambitious greenhouse.

I would really love to hear what you think about this post . . .
