Greenhouse frame Up!

It’s July here and HOT!  Thank goodness for the pool.  We’re making good use of it!  We hired someone from Craigslist to get a recycled play structure… it was a great deal but I felt so sorry for them out there in the sun!  Decided it’s a good time to resurface the asphalt too, since we have huge cracks.  Most importantly, though, we got our greenhouse frame!!  Another Craigslist find, it was purchased by a couple who never put it up.  Not a standard shape – I think it’s actually a carport frame but it came with the heavy duty greenhouse plastic and it’ll work just fine.  Now, to get the cover on…

 We signed up for Mountain Bounty’s CSA as we obviously won’t be growing our own this year… all three shares (veggies, fruit, and flowers).  What an awesome selection!  Look at this veggie drawer and that’s not all of it.

The boxes are almost unpacked, and after moving furniture about 27 times I think we’ve got thing about set.  TM was nice enough to buy me a few flowering plants for the back patio while he was out (you don’t get to my heart through my stomach – it’s plants).  The deer thought they were an awesome treat!  We have learned that the oasis of watered grass is just for them.    As we get into the dry season I am sure it’ll just get worse.  

Oh well, trying to enjoy the wildlife since it is beautiful if destructive.  

Speaking of, check out this HUGE black widow that was in the stables.    

We really are enjoying ourselves – got a pool fence and the kids are loving the backyard now that we’re safe.  It’s pretty awesome you can remove it yourself and they can’t climb it.  Some serious barbeque going on as well!
