Before and After: The greenhouse restored!

Posted 3/14/2018 1:15pm by John and Aimee Good.

BEFORE: Patches on the greenhouse, from the outside, and the inside. 
   



AFTER: New plastic on the greenhouse, 2 layers replaced

We had a great crew of family and friends over on Sunday, and together we restored the greenhouse to full functioning! We decided on Sunday because the weather forecast was for a calm day, with very low wind, and sun. Well, the morning did not hold up to the forecast, and we fought the plastic to keep it from sailing aloft. There were some strong gusts, and even the children came out to sit along the edges for extra weight!

By noon the weathermen were proved right, and the calm, warm day arrived. We were able to re-do the parts that did not get tight the first time, when the wind was billowing the plastic, and although it took longer than we expected, it worked out beautifully in the end.

And just in time! I don't know how well our patches would have stood up to leaks on the extremely cold nights this week!

You know the old saying: March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb. Well, the lion is definitely roaring through the beginning of March! Hopefully the lamb will greet us as we near the end of the month. . . hoping for spring weather to arrive soon!

We may have another late start to the planting season, as we did last year after the big March snowstorm. But we are continuing to start seedlings and prepare for the season as usual. We know that the plants will catch up once  we can get them outside, and we cannot prepare fields until they are ready, so we wait on Mother Nature.
